The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba on Thursday reacted to the assault on a female Police officer, Inspector Teju Moses, by her principal, Prof. Zainab Duke Abiola.

According to a statement released on Thursday by the Force Spokesperson, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, the human rights activist perpetrated the act on Tuesday 20th September 2022 at her residence in Abuja, with the help of one Rebecca Enechido and a male suspect.

“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has strongly condemned the grievous assault of a female Police Officer, Inspector Teju Moses, by her principal who is a Legal practitioner and human rights activist, Prof. Zainab Duke Abiola and her domestic staff comprising the housemaid, one Rebecca Enechido and a male suspect currently at large.

“Zainab Duke, a Mbaise-born activist, grievously assaulted her orderly in the company of some accomplices 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,” he said.

CSP Adejobi added that the suspects have been arrested, noting that the IGP has ordered prosecution as evidence available to the disposal shows the culpability of the alleged human rights activist.

“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,” he added.
