Acting NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, N’Dranou Perou, has refuted claims that his police officers damaged properties at the Yumi Yet Real Estate company premises.
He said, the claims raised by the owner of the property, Eke Lama, are not true. Investigations into the alleged incident are in progress.
Yesterday, owner of Yumi Yet real estate, Eke Lama, came out in the media, condemning the actions of the police on his property. He alleged police acted outside of the law to damage his property and assault tenants. But in an interview today, Acting NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, N’Dranou Perou, refuted these claims.
Mr. Perou says his officers acted upon orders to arrest a rape suspect living at the premises. But in the process of carrying out their duties, they were held hostage, and threatened by relatives of the suspect which instigated the incident.
Mr. Perou says, the rape suspect has been arrested, but could not reveal the identity of the suspect as investigations are continuing.
Investigations will also be carried out to verify claims by the owner of Yumi Yet Real Estate, Eke Lama, regarding his damaged property, assault on tenants, and confiscating of items and cash.
