Court remands professor for assaulting police orderly
Professor Zainab Duke Abiola and Rebecca Enechido were remanded to the Suleja Correctional Facility by the Chief Magistrate Court of FCT Zone 6 until October 5, 2022.

For seriously assaulting her police orderly, Inspector Teju Moses, Prof. Abiola was detained.

Abiola, a lawyer and human rights advocate, was charged by the police with trying to commit culpable homicide and intentionally insulting someone in order to violate their confidence.

According to the court's decision, the case was postponed until the next hearing on October 5th and the suspect was ordered to remain in the Suleja Correctional Facility.

Prof. Abiola, an Mbaise-born activist, grievously assaulted her orderly in company of some accomplices on Tuesday 20th September, at her residence in Garki, Abuja.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, had earlier 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.

The IGP condemned the grievous assault of Inspector Moses.
