A security staff of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education Rumulomeni,Obio/Akpor Local Government area of Rivers State, Mr Mgbechi Wekwe has been accused of abducting and defiling a 16-year-old girl.
A human right group, Centre for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign called on the institution to handover the suspect to the Police without further delay.
The group in a statement by its coordinator, Prince Wiro expressed worry that over a week after the Aluu Divisional Police headquarters wrote to the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Ozo -Mekuri Ndimele about the incident, the security personnel is yet to be handed over to the Police.
Mr Wiro said the group is disturbed that the security personnel who has not been handed over to the Police for investigation has been coming to work and taking refuge in the institution despite the weight of the allegation against him.
The group condemned the action of the school Management which is giving an impression that the suspect is being shielded.
Mr Wiro revealed that efforts made by the Police to arrest the suspect, aside writing to the Vice Chancellor, has been frustrated by seeming lack of cooperation on the part of the institution.
The coordinator of the group disclosed that the most disturbing aspect is that the suspect reportedly called the mother of the alleged rape survivor two days ago and told her the school will not hand him over to the Police as he enjoys the protection and love of some highly placed individuals in the University in particular, the Chief Security Officer.
Mr Wiro called on the visitor to the school, Nyesom Wike,Governor of Rivers State,Rivers State Ministries of Education,Women and Social welfare,the general public to prevail on the University to hand over the suspect to the Police.
Mr Wiro stated that the group will commence series of legitimate actions which may include peaceful protest to the University if the suspect is not handed over to the Police on or before January 31,2021.
Meanwhile Mrs Kindness Edwin the mother of the 16 year old alleged female rape survivor accused Mr Wekwe of abducting and defiling her daughter over her(mother’s) refusal to marry the 60 year old security man.
