Policeman wanted for kidnapping 8-year-old girl

30 April 2014, 15:05

Lagos - The Lagos Police Command, on Wednesday said it had sent out signals to police commands nationwide to track the fleeing policeman, who allegedly kidnapped an eight-year-old girl.

Spokesman of the command, DSP Ngozi Braide said that so far no police formation in the Lagos command had identified the suspect as one of its officers.

An eight year old girl, was allegedly found under the bed of the suspect, said to be attached to Mopol 22 Squadron, GRA, Ikeja.

The suspect was alleged to have tied his victim’s legs and hands before hitting her on the head in an attempt to break her neck.

The girl was discovered under the suspect's bed at his residence located at 1, Olufowobi St., Ikosi-Ketu, Lagos.

"We will get him. His pictures are already in all the papers, whether he is a policeman or not is immaterial. We have sent signals to all police commands nationwide.

"We have gone to check for him at MOPOL 22 Squadron that is printed on his uniform, but nobody knows him. We have also checked other mobile police squadrons and still, nobody knows him.

"We have sent signals to every police post and division within the command.

"We are not resting on our oars. If he is in this command, we will get him, if he is not in Lagos command, we will get him with the signals sent to other commands," Braide said. NAN
