The Police Service Commission said it would sanction any police officer found culpable in the abduction of 14-year-old Ese Oruru.
This is contained in a statement issued by Ikechukwu Ani, Head, Press and Public Relations of the commission, in Abuja on Thursday.
Miss. Oruru was taken without parental consent from Yenagoa August 2015, to Kano, for a forced marriage to Yunusa Dahiru, a customer to her mother’s food shop.
She was reunited with her parents on Tuesday.
“The Police Service Commission will not hesitate to sanction any Police Officer no matter how highly placed who is found culpable in the abduction saga,“ the statement said.
It said that the commission was waiting for outcome of ongoing investigation of some officers in the matter.
According to it, the commission would ensure that any officer found to have compromised himself is flushed out of the force.
The statement said that the commission would work with the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to guarantee the freedom of Nigerians like Ese.
It commended the IGP for ensuring that the victim was immediately reunited with her family.
