Police authorities in Plateau have dismissed a police corporal, Damudu Bzibu, who allegedly raped a four-year-old girl.
Bzibu, with force number, 378612, was attached to the Special Task Force on security in Jos, when he, on March 26 at about 9am at Kassa in Barakin Ladi Local Government Area, lured little Helen Timothy and had carnal knowledge of her.
Plateau State Police Commissioner, Mt. Chris Olakpe, who paraded the suspect along with other criminals at the state police headquarters in Jos on Tuesday, said Helen’s father had discovered when he came back from work that blood was gushing from the pants of his daughter and when he asked her what happened, she said she was raped by a mobile policeman.
Olakpe said the suspect was later identified at Bzibu of 14 PMF, Markudi attached to Sector 7 of STF.
He said the inspector general of police had shown special interest in the rape case, adding that the suspect was given orderly room trial, found guilty and dismissed.
The commissioner also paraded a 12-year-old boy, who out of anger over a domestic quarrel, stabbed his elder brother to death.
Also arrested and paraded were four armed robbers, who invaded the home of a permanent Secretary, Mrs. Julie Anpe. The robbers were said to have been arrested by men of ‘A’ Division led by CSP Victor Dimkpa.
Other suspects paraded were those of a man, Benjamin Toma, who beat his wife to death and later hanged her to fake the act because she did not yield to his special advances; another suspect, who along with four others now at large conspired to kill a 20-year old boy; and a case of child trafficking against one Markus Charles, who stole and sold his son from his mother fit N350,000.
Olakpe said all the suspects would soon be charged to court, while assuring that the case against the cop rapist would be covered fully by the media.
