#JusticeforUWA:  Her father did not report rape to the police, it was only Assault Occassioning Harm - Edo Police spokesperson tells LIB

Nwabuzor said the father of the girl went to the police station to report the matter but that he never mentioned rape. 

”The information I received from the Divisional Police officer in charge of the Ikpoba Hill Division was that the father of the deceased made a complaint and the complaint he made was Assault Occassioning Harm and since he reported the matter, the father had not come back. They took the deceased to the hospital where she gave up the ghost. We have asked the DPO to reach out to the father of the girl who refused to come back to the station after reporting the case at the first instance. 

I confirm that the incident happened and that the girl was assaulted but that of rape, nobody can testify. There was no one there that can testify that the girl was raped. The girl was in a Coma so they couldn’t record a statement from her until she gave up the ghost.

The DPO said the father of the girl only reported Assault Ocassioning Harm, that no rape was mentioned because he himself wasn’t there and nobody is coming forward to say I witnessed what happened there.

So the father’s report according to the law is just a hear say testimony. He wasn’t there” the police spokesperson said


 Nwabuzor said the police is currently carrying out an investigation into the matter to determine what truly happened.
