The inspector-general of police, Usman Baba, has ordered an investigation into the alleged detention of a 21-year-old girl identified as Glory Okolie by officers of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) in Imo state.
The victim as gathered was said to have been arrested on June 17 by IRT officers in order to use her as bait to arrest her boyfriend who is suspected to be a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Following the development, the family of the young lady had been searching for her.
Harrison Gwamnishu, an activist and director-general of Behind Bars Human Rights Foundation, in a Facebook post, said it was later discovered that Okolie was in the custody of IRT in Imo allegedly cooking and washing for the officers.
He also accused the police of extorting the family several hundreds of thousands of Naira when they went to ask for her bail. He said Okolie was later transferred to Abuja.
