The Enugu State Police Command said it has commenced investigation into the alleged rape of several ladies at a musical concert, which featured popstar, Chinedu Okoli, popularly known as Flavour on Saturday.
The concert was held at the Michael Okpara Square, Enugu.
The social media is buzzing with the allegation that over 20 ladies were raped, while some left the show naked with their dresses torn by some criminals.
Though the police only mentioned a case of attempted rape and stealing of phones and other crimes, witnesses lamented the rate ladies were raped.
The concert attracted a large crowd such that the venue could not contain the number of music fans who turned out for show.
This was mainly because the show allowed free entry for residents.
Another reason was that Flavour, the major attraction of the show, grew up in Enugu, where he has a large fan base.
The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in the state, Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Sunday that the police had commenced investigation into the matter.
He said that already, a suspect was in custody for attempting to rape a lady at the concert.
He said, “The Enugu State Police Command, through its operatives at the Independence Layout Division, has commenced investigations into the alleged conduct of some people, ranging from attempt to gang rape a victim, as well as other offences, during a musical concert at the Michael Okpara Square.
“One person, who is already helping operatives in their investigation, has been nabbed for his alleged role in the attempt to gang rape a victim at the Square yesterday during the musical concert of a popular Nigerian musician.”
The PPRO, added that three others were arrested for allegedly stealing mobile phones during the event.
“Those arrested will be made to face the music in line with various provisions and specifications of the law after investigations,” he said.
