Just few days after the much anticipated Flavour of Africa concert, police are still investigating the cases of rape carried out at the venue. Enugu State Police Command on Wednesday called for victims of the alleged series of rape occurrences at the Flavour of Africa concert which was held over the weekend to come forward and testify.
The concert which was held by 2Nite Entertainment superstar Flavour saw performances from Phyno, Tekno, Zoro & Semah but was marred by reports of rape from various sources.
The reports claimed the bouncers and police operatives at the event tried unsuccessfully to stop the vile act but found themselves outnumbered.
The state Police PRO, Ebere Amaraizu released a statement Wednesday explaining that the force had not received any reports of rape and would appreciate if the victims would come forward and testify.
Read the statement below;
The newspaper report (of the mass rape), which is based on a twitter message in the social media, is unfounded and we cannot operate on speculations as a law enforcement agency.
Till now, nobody has come forward to report any case of sexual assault or molestation and rape to the Command.
However, our doors in the Command, divisional headquarters and stations over the state are open for anybody or group to make a report and we will take it up from there by doing further investigation.
“There is no reported case of rape (from the musical concert) anywhere in the Enugu State Police Command.
We don’t have any incident arising from that event. Whoever that has any should come forward, and we will look at it.”
