The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has strongly condemned the assault on a female police officer, Inspector Teju Moses, by her principal, who is a legal practitioner and human rights activist, Professor. Zainab Duke, and her domestic staff, one Rebecca Enechido, as well as a male suspect currently at large.
The Force spokesperson, Mr Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made this known in Abuja.
He noted that Mrs Duke, an Mbaise born activist, grievously assaulted her orderly in company of some accomplices on Tuesday, September nineteenth, 2022, at her residence in Garki, Abuja, due to the refusal of the orderly to breach professional ethics by carrying out menial and domestic chores at her house.
He, however, noted that it was pertinent to clarify that the suspect, Zainab, who name-drops the IG, his family members, and other officers in the top hierarchy of the force, has no acquaintance with the police in any form as peddled on social media.
The IG, who similarly ordered the withdrawal of all police personnel attached to the professor, expressed disappointment at the fact that an individual who claims to be an advocate for human rights could stoop so low to violate the rights of another individual.
