Sex For Bail Allegation Hits Ilaje Division Police Officer

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal has asked the Gender Unit of the Ilaje Police Division in the Bariga area of the state, to unravel the allegations of sexual harassment against an officer at the station.
According to a report by The Nation, a widow, Mrs Adebukola Mowette, is alleging that an officer, simply identified as Egi asked her for s*x to grant her bail.
“He fondled my breasts and threatened to ensure I rot in prison if I refused to sleep with him. He said in jail, they will shave the hairs on my private parts and those on my head,”the woman said yesterday.
It was gathered that Mowette, who was detained on June 25, after a fight with a man, said she was yet to get over the humiliation and harassment she went through.
She said she was shocked by the actions of another policeman and a policewoman, who told her to accept Egi’s proposal for the case against her would be dropped.
The woman recalled that it all started in May when she reported the loss of her phone at the station.
She claimed that she placed her phone on a roadside betting kiosk popularly known as Baba Ijebu, where some youngsters sat in order to tie her wrapper properly, adding that when she was done, she did not find the phone again.
“They said they did not see my phone and so, I had to go to the police to report. They were invited but at the end of the day, the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) said I accused them wrongly and asked us to go. 
“From that day, whenever I passed, they would be threatening me and making snide remarks. I never replied them. I even reported the matter to our Community Development Association (CDA). But on June 25, my son came from Ikorodu and they stopped him on the road and threatened him as well. They said they would kill us if we did not leave the street for them.
“There was no way I would allow them threaten my son and so, I went out and confronted that particular area boy. He pushed me. I also pushed him back.
“We started fighting; people separated us and I left. The next thing, police came and arrested me that I have injured him and that he could not walk again. They took me to the station and locked me up inside the cell. 
“I even asked Egi why I was the only one arrested, since it was two fighting but he said the complainant was in the hospital. That I have not seen anything yet.”
