A retired police officer, Christopher Archibong is really no longer upholding the law.

He was arrested and detained at the Mbukpa Police station for allegedly raping a 9-year old girl in Calabar, Cross River State.

The mother of the little girl, Peace Edem Okon said she had gone to the market and left instructions with the victim to wash the clothes of her siblings and upon her return discovered that something was not right.

“When I got back I discovered that my daughter wasn’t herself, all efforts to make her tell me what was wrong were futile. 

“Then the younger ones told me that blood was coming out from her bottom. I was surprise and thought she had started seeing her period. It was when I bought pad and tried helping her fix it that I discovered it was mucus, and upon persuasion she told me what happened”. 

In her statement, the victim said 

“He  told me to come and pick some firewood. So as I went to pick the firewood, he came and held me to the ground and climbed on me," 

Mrs. Theresa Okpa of Basic Rights Council (BRCI), the law firm handling the case said that the family of the victim fears the case may be compromised, especially as the accused is a former Police officer.
