The Rivers State Police Command has revealed that it has arrested the police officer who shot a teenager, identified as Ledisi Kote, 19, for impregnating a girl.

Recall we reported that the police officer along with three others from Kpor Division in Gokana LGA, stormed the teenager’s compound on Friday, August 21, and shot him on the leg for impregnating a 17-year-old girl.

The police officer who fired the shot was arrested just as the 19-year-old had finally undergone his first surgery and is responding to treatment.

Tuka Loenyie, a human rights advocate, who is also the whistle-blower of the incident gave an update on the current state of Ledesi Kote by reporting that although the victim had successfully completed the first surgery, the doctors said that he was yet to undergo the second and third surgery to repair the damage the Police’s AK-47 did to his left leg.

The officer was detained at the Rivers State Criminal Investigation Department on the orders of the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State, Joseph Mukan.

Confirming that arrest, SP Nnamdi Omoni, Spokesman of the Rivers State Police Command said;

“Immediately we got the complaint, the Police Inspector was disarmed and arrested. He is presently undergoing investigation at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID on the orders of the Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph Mukan.”
