Corporal Barau Garba Rapes 14 year old Maryam

It was gathered that after an orderly room trial which held on Monday,  the 30th of October in Anambra State, he was handed a summary dismissal.

The spokesperson for the command, Mrs Nkiruka Nwode confirmed this.

The rape and abduction of the 14-year-old girl made headlines when Mr Alhassan Dambata, an activist revealed how the girl got lost on October 14, while on an errand from Asaba, Delta State to Onitsha and was approached by Corporal Barau Garba.

It was also learned that, instead of the policeman from MOPOL 7, Sokoto State on a special duty in Anambra State, to give the girl directions, he instead abducts her to his home where he sexually assaulted her for six days.

Mr. Barau Garba, a temporarily attachee to the Okpoko Police Division in Onitsha, would be arraigned in a magistrate’s court in Anambra State on November 8th, 2017.

The girl’s parents, who are natives of Kano state but living in Delta State, when approached and asked about the welfare of their daughter, said they would rather speak through the activist who serves as the interface between them and the police.

Mr. Alhassan Dambata stated that: “The parents are very poor and uneducated. This is why Maryam does not attend any school. We have been trying our best to give her some care and treatment. But after the initial outcry from members of the public, we have heard nothing from government officials as a way of assisting the girl. An official from the Office of the Vice President even called to inquire about the condition of the girl, but we have heard nothing since then.

He continues that: “The Commissioner of Police in Anambra State, Mr. Umar Garba, has been wonderful. He paid all her hospital bills and has even said that if anything is expected from the parents, which they cannot afford, they should come to him. Apart from him, a woman donated N10,000 to the girl child’s care and a student even donated N3,000 for her care.”

In the meantime, the girl who was only identified as Maryam is still undergoing treatment in the hospital.
