Professor Zainab Dike arrested for assaulting police orderly
An orderly assigned by the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters to one Professor Dike Zainab has been admitted to a hospital for medical treatment after she was allegedly tortured at the behest of her boss.
The incident was said to have occurred at the Area 11 axis of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
In a video making the rounds online, the policewoman is seen seating on the floor, with a bloody face.
““She told her boys to kill me,” the female officer said incoherently as she reportedly spoke to her direct boss on the phone.
Professor Zainab was reported to have said that there will be no consequences as she is a friend of the wife of the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba.
A senior police officer identified the victim as Teju Moses.
He added that the Professor has been arrested by operatives of the FCT Police Command.
“The Professor has been arrested with her housemaids and they will be charged to court for sure. She can’t escape justice,” SaharaReporters quoted the police source as saying.
The video has generated mixed reactions on social media, with many Nigerians calling for the prosecution of the professor.
