“Immediately after taking down her statement, policemen swung into action and were able to arrest Idongesit Effiong while two of his friends ran away.

“Effiong was arrested with fake police uniform.

 Etete however denies the allegation stating that he has not met the girl.

He said, “I don’t even know this girl. I have not seen Etete before. This allegation of rape is baseless because I am not guilty of the crime,”

The case is currently being investigated by the state police as they hope to uncover evidence against him.
