Prof. Zainab Duke arrested for beating policewoman 


Human rights activist, Prof. Zainab Duke has been arrested in Abuja alongside her domestic staff, Rebecca Enechido, for assaulting a policewoman, Inspector Teju Moses for refusing to do some domestic chores she assigned to her.

Inspector Teju said “prof. Duke told me to go assist a staff to open the gate but I repeated the fact that I was in uniform and it was raining. She then said that why would I answer her that way, that it was a query, in her words. So, I kept quiet, and later ordered her staff to beat me up.

Reacting to the viral video on Thursday, the Nigerier police force in a statement signed by  Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, titled ‘Grievous assault on woman police, IGP condemns act, orders express prosecution of case’.

FORO, Olumuyiwa Adejobi said, “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 house maid, one Rebecca Enechido and a male suspect currently at large.

“Zainab Duke, an Mbaise born activist, grievously assaulted her orderly in 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.

“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. It is pertinent to clarify that the suspect, Prof. Zainab, who name-drops the IGP, his family members, and other officers in the top hierarchy of the Force has no acquaintance 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 consternation 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.”
