The Delta State Police Command has provided clarification on the release of a Nollywood costumier, Prince Onyenwere, who was accused of molesting a 10-year-old girl.

GISTMANIA reported how Prince Onyenwere was allegedly caught abusing the girl on a movie set in January. He was handed over to the police after facing a physical assault for the purported act.

Onyenwere was subsequently released by the police, which prompted criticism on social media.

Bright Edafe, the Public Relations Officer of the Delta State Police Command, addressed the matter in a statement shared on his Instagram page.

Edafe explained that the release occurred because the mother of the victim complicated the case by informing the law enforcement agency that she and her family had forgiven the accused person.

The police spokesperson shared screenshots of text messages and an affidavit to support this claim.

He stressed that Onyenwere was granted “temporary bail,” with the expectation that the family would take appropriate action.

“I want members of the public to read how the mother of the victim compounded the entire case stating that she and her family has forgiven the suspect.

“She refused to show up with the victim. Attached are screenshots of text messages, and an affidavit.

“On the premise of that, charging the suspect was granted a temporary bail with the hope that the family will do the right thing,”
he wrote.

Should be againts the state, and the mother charged with interfering with a police investigation or accessory after the fact. A lot of lawlessness in the country because the pot bellied lawmakers seem not to be making the right laws.

Oga Police this is a shame coming from you.  The parents of the girl have no legal right to withdraw the case as the case is between the state and the defendant. Only the state can for the lack of sufficient evidence can ask for more time before going for trial.its a shame to Nigerian police and the legal  system if this nonsense is allowed.
