Air Force officer dismissed over rape of displaced girl, 14.

 

An Air Force officer, FLt.-Lt. Martins Owerem, has been dismissed from the Nigerian Military over a crime of rape and assault of a 14-year-old displaced girl.

The Nigerian Military Court Martial sitting in Maiduguri on Tuesday passed the verdict, saying it found the officer guilty of the two offences of rape and assault.

President of the Court, Maj.-Gen. Yakubu Auta, held that the court found Owerem the guilty on the two counts rape and assault.

The convict was charged with defilement; assault and disobedient to standing order.

Auta held that the prosecution, through five witnesses and four exhibits, have proved their case beyond reasonable doubts.

He held that the court found the officer guilty on the first and second-count charge, while it discharged and acquitted him on the third-count charge.

The judge, therefore, ordered for dismissal from service of the convict on the first count charge and sentenced him to demotion by one rank on the second-count charge.

Earlier, the Judge Advocate, Capt. Aminu Mairuwa, told the court that the convict on Sept. 29, 2018, while on patrol duty at Kawon Jiya community in the outskirts of Maiduguri, arrested some girls, who were collecting firewood, on the pretext that they crossed into the restricted area.

Mairuwa argued that the convict took one of the girls into the bush and raped her.

However, Defence Counsel, Mr Abbas Abba, sought for leniency in view of the selfless service and contributions of the convict in the counter insurgency campaign.
