“On the issue of gang rape at Mami barracks where three persons and one alleged soldier raped a pregnant lady and her sister on Tuesday this week, we are following keenly.
“The other lady that took ill critically and was rushed to the Navy Hospital Effurun yesterday and she is still on admission.
“The soldiers at 3 battalion Effurun has stampeded us for about an hour this morning refusing to hand over the suspect that was caught yesterday to the police ably led by a woman DSP. Their integrity does not worth the lives of innocent Nigerian girls.
“I’m not threatening the Army authority but my promise is on the premise of justice that we shall get the suspects and prosecute them whether they like it or not. If the army doesn’t want a sour on the cordial relationship we enjoy, upon this issue our stand remains for justice.
“If all avenues are explored and the army remains adamant, there will be a PRESS statement address straight to the Chief of Army staff. A stitch in time saves nine.”
