There was pandemonium on Saturday at Bridge Head, Onitsha when a female police officer, identified as Inspector Tochukwu was allegedly abused, molested and almost stripped naked by a famous wealthy man.
The much dreaded man, Ngozi Okpagu had also allegedly slapped a commissioner of police last year.
An eye witness who gave his name as Tunde alleged that Offoegbu was on duty when the ‘big man’, who owns a park in Onitsha approached her threatening to facilitate her removal from Onitsha as he did to one Archibong.
“At that point, the female police officer demanded from him what she did that would warrant her removal and in reply he slapped her for daring him. His boys also joined and immediately they tore the female officer’s uniform, almost revealing her nakedness.
“She ran for her life into the police post to avoid the peering eyes of the public. The Area Commander, Benjamin Wordu asked all of them to come to the area police station Onitsha.
“That man cannot be arrested because last time he slapped the CP because of motor park matters and the Governor later closed the park’’, the source further alleged.
When contacted the DPO Fegge where Offoegbu works, Muikdi Shehu said he would not speak on the matter, insisting that the PPRO was the only person authorized to speak.
The PPRO Emeka Chukwuemeka when contacted on phone said he was in Onitsha Area commander and would get back to this reporter on the issue.
CP Balah Nassarawa was said to be out of the state as at the time of filing this report.
However, reacting, the coordinator Campaign for Democracy, Dede Uzor A Uzor demanded for the immediate arrest of the suspect and thorough investigation into the matter.
The group gave the commissioner of police 7 days to arrest the man or face protest.
