The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun has interrogated the Ogun State Commissioner for Environment, Abiodun Abudu-Balogun, who was accused of sexual harassment by a teenager, Barakat Melojuekun.
DAILY POST learnt that Abudu-Balogun was grilled by the Police Commissioner himself after the case was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department.
Recall that the 16-year-old Barakat Melojuekun had in a viral video alleged that Abudu-Balogun sexually harassed her by forcefully touching her breasts, caressing her and saying some incantations with an attempt to place his hand on her head.
Though Abudu-Balogun debunked the allegations, describing it as political blackmail, it did not stop Governor Dapo Abiodun from suspending him to allow for a thorough police investigation.
While giving update on a Family FM Abeokuta programme monitored by DAILY POST on Wednesday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi hinted that the police has concluded its investigation.
According to Oyeyemi, the CP, Ajogun took charge of the investigation as he personally questioned the accused Commissioner, the 16-year-old accuser and Lasisi Saheed, the uncle that took her to Abudu-Balogun’s house.
In his words, Oyeyemi explained that the command has submitted its report to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
“We (The police) have concluded our investigation and we have forwarded our report to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to know the next step.
“According to the nature of the case, we will conclude our investigation and forward the report to the DPP. It is the DPP that will now advise us on what the accused will be charged for. We are waiting for the advice from the DPP.
“You will remember that the girl and her father made efforts to withdraw the case. But the police did not agree to that. The case is no more their own. It is now between the Commissioner of Police and the accused. That’s why we continued with this case to get to the root of the matter.
“We have done all that is necessary in our investigation. In fact, it was the CP himself that interrogated the accused person, the accuser and her uncle that took her to the house of the Commissioner for Environment,” Oyeyemi explained.
Asked, the PPRO refused to give details of what was in the report forwarded to the DPP by the police.
“Everybody will see the outcome of our investigation by the time the DPP sends its recommendations,” he quipped.
