A distraught woman was seen in a viral video crying after she was allegedly sent out of a police station in Abia state, after reporting a rape incident perpetrated against her daughter.
Twitter user @bimbo_cash said the lady was asked to leave the police station after reporting that her 5-year-old daughter was raped by a 30-year-old man. The video was recorded by a good Samaritan who showed concern.
The lady claimed she was assaulted at the police station by policemen who asked her to go home and treat her child with her own money, after allegedly receiving bribe.
The Twitter user tweeted;
