The Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered the prosecution of Prof. Zainab Duke Abiola, a legal practitioner and human rights activist and her domestic staff comprising the house maid, one Rebecca Enechido and a male suspect currently at large over assault on a female police officer, Inspector Teju Moses, her orderly., pub-3120625432113532, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Zainab Duke, an Mbaise born activist, seriously assaulted her orderly in company of some assistants on Tuesday 20th September, 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.

According to a statement issued by the Force spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the IGP has directed the prompt prosecution of the arrested suspects who are currently in police custody, as the preliminary investigation shows overwhelming evidence of guilt on the part of the Professor and her domestic staff.

The IGP, CSP Adejobi said, has equally tasked the investigative team to ensure that the escaping suspect is arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.

“It is pertinent to clarify that the suspect, Prof. Zainab Duke, who name-drops the IGP, his family members, and other officers in the top hierarchy of the Force has no associate with the Police in any form as erroneously peddled on social media.

“The Inspector-General of Police who similarly ordered the withdrawal of all Police personnel attached to the Professor, expressed dismay 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, a police officer tasked with ensuring her protection”, CSP Adejobi stated.
