The Enugu State Police Command has dispelled the reported rape of at least 20 ladies at a musical concert, Nigerian pop star, Chinedu Okoli, aka Flavour, in the State.
The concert , which held at the Michael Okpara Square, Enugu on Saturday, ended with news that 20 ladies were raped.
According to Daily Post, it was reported that spokesman of the Police in the State, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said that neither the State command headquarters nor any of its division had received report from any victim over the reported rape.
Amaraizu, who wondered how the news was generated, said mischief could not be ruled out as those behind it must have had the evil intention to put terror in the minds of the law abiding members of the public and also paint security operatives, the State Government and the organisers in bad light.
“There is no reported case 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.
“That event was organized by Flavour as a way of giving back to the society, because he grew up here in Enugu.
“We won’t want a situation where people sit down somewhere and manufacture stories because he who asserts must also prove.”
