The Police Public Relation Officer of the FCT Command, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, has appealed to victims of rape to speak out and cooperate with police prosecutors to get justice.
While speaking with the sideline of the Forum for the Adoption of Framework on Police Media-Relationship and safety of Journalists in Abuja.
He said prosecution of alleged rape case becomes a challenge when victims and their families do not come out or present themselves in the investigation and prosecution of the matter.
He added that some of the family members who are principal witness would not want to come out; sometimes they go behind and settled the issue without the knowledge of the police.
Manzah says, You cannot go to court without the victim to tell their part of the story.
