Abdulmumuni Danga, Commissioner for water resources has been charged to court for an alleged Rape case. He has been accused of rape and brutality of a lady called  Elizabeth Oyeniyi in Lokoja, Kogi State.

According to the charge sheet signed by the State Prosecutor, ACP Effiong Asuquo and filed on September 4, 2020, Danga would be prosecuted by the police on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The charge sheet read:

“That you Abdulmumuni Danga ‘M’ with other persons now at large; on or about the 29th day of March, 2020 at Lokoja; within the jurisdiction of this honourable court did falsify an audio recording purporting same to be the audio of Dr Chinonyerem Welle, Medical Director, Police Hospital, Area 1, Garki, Abuja saying that she issued medical report for the rape and assault of Elizabeth Onyeniyi ‘F’ unlawfully; and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 7 of the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act, 2015.

“That you Abdulmumuni Danga ‘M’, Success Omadavi ‘F’ with other persons now at large; on or about the 29th day of March, 2020 at Lokoja; within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, did falsify an audio recording purporting same to be a lady talking to another female saying that Elizabeth Onyeniyi ‘F’ confessed to her that she was not raped by the defendant, Abdulmumuni Danga ‘M’ but that it was Natasha that asked her to say she was raped; and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 7 of the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act, 2015”.

While justifying the transfer of the case to Abuja, the Police Officer who conducted the investigation, Amaka Okoh, stated if the case was prosecuted in Lokoja or anywhere in Kogi State, there was a probability that Ms Oyeniyi and other witnesses could be victimised by Danga, who is a politician.
