The Nigerian Police has exposed the identity of the professor who earlier brutalized her orderly in the Garki area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as Professor Zainab Duke-Abiola.
Recall, a viral video showed an operative of the Nigeria Police Force battered and bleeding after she was allegedly beaten up by the maids of a professor she was attached to in Abuja.
The assaulted officer told sympathizers that she was an orderly to one Prof. Dike Zainab who ordered her maids to deal with her.
However, police after much persuasion from the public in a series of tweets shared a photo showing Zainab, a legal practitioner and human rights activist, and her domestic staff writing a statement after their arrest.
Information obtained from her Facebook page also described her as Her Royal Highness, The Akasoba of Kalabari.
The Police said the incident had occurred after the operative identified as Inspector Teju Moses refused to carry out menial and domestic chores at her residence, which contravenes her professional ethics.
The statement said, “The IGP has directed the express prosecution of the arrested suspects who are currently in Police custody, as the preliminary investigation shows overwhelming evidence of culpability on the part of the Professor and her domestic staff.
“The IGP has equally tasked the investigative team to ensure that the fleeing suspect is arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.”
