In a statement released to newsmen by the Secretary of the
council, Bello Ifo, on Thursday, it was revealed that the
traditional ruler allegedly raped a 15-year-old girl, who is the
daughter of one his servants and reportedly sent on an errand
to the palace.
The incident which was reported to the victim’s parents by
the girl, led to the arrest and detention of the Traditional
ruler, after they took her to the hospital for medical
examination and care.
Also, the state’s Coalition of Civil Society Organisations, has
been mounting pressure on the Police to ensure that justice
is delivered at the traditional ruler’s prosecution.
His suspension will however be lifted, pending the
determination of a criminal litigation against him.
