A Corps member, Jonathan Ogbe, has absconded from his one-year compulsory national service over his alleged involvement in the defilement of a 12-year-old pupil in the Asamabiri community of Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa state.
According to a report, the 31-year-old Kogi State indigene, with NYSC call-up number, NYSC/ABU/2020/113131, abandoned service and has since refused to pick up his discharge certificate having been on the run from the law.
The accused Corps member was said to have reportedly lured the 12-year-old girl, names withheld, who is a pupil in the community primary school to his house and defiled her repeatedly.
Following the incident which allegedly occurred in September 2021, the Civil Society Group, Gender-based advocacy groups and indigenes of the community have accused the gender unit of the Bayelsa Police Command of foot-dragging in arresting and prosecuting the corps member.
