How Police officer was arrested in Akwa Ibom for requesting s-ex from suspect
A police officer has been arrested in Akwa Ibom State for seeking to have carnal knowledge of a suspect he was investigating.
He was detained after a popular critic Da Zion Umoh made the allegation on social media.
The seriousness of the allegations caused the Commissioner of Police, CP Amiengheme Andrew to order for the arrest of the said constable and his supervising officer.
State police spokesman SP Odiko MacDon said CP Andrew further ordered that a discreet investigation be conducted.
He said the officers would be punished if found wanting.
In a statement on Sunday, June 27, he said: “Preliminary available facts revealed that on 17th June 2021 at about 11:45 pm, while on patrol within Abak circuits, a team of policemen sighted and accosted a red De-Mak motorcycle, conveying five persons including the Rider, at a time of heightened security concerns in the State.
“An instant search on the persons led to the recovery of a live cartridge from one Godwin Emmanuel Wilson, 25 years of age, a bar attendant, and the rider of the bike.
“On interrogation, he alleged that he picked the cartridge at the bar he sells after the birthday celebration of one Morris Emmanuel Sunday who is the boyfriend to the girl making the allegation, one Grace Emmanuel Sunday.
“They were all arrested and taken to the station and detained till morning when they were interviewed by the Area Commander, warned and granted bail except the principal suspect, Godwin Emmanuel Wilson who was found with a cartridge and contrary to Zion Umoh’s allegation that he was released, he was taken to court but brought back because the court was not in session.”
