Protesters besiege FCT police command over alleged rape of prostitutes by policemen

Some protesters on Saturday besieged the federal capital territory (FCT) police command over the alleged rape of some commercial sex workers by some policemen.

In April, a joint task force raided Caramelo, a popular strip club, in the nation’s capital, and arrested some strippers.

The task force also arrested suspected sex workers in different parts of Abuja. Some of those arrested were allegedly raped by police officers.

In response to the allegation, the FCT police command said it had set up a “high power” team to probe the allegations.

But the protesters stormed the command on Saturday, demanding that the culprits be punished publicly.

They also held placards which read “Sex for bail is rape”, “To be a woman is not a crime”, “You should protect us not harm us”, among others.
