Shortly after she instituted a suit against the Police for defamation, the Nigeria Police has charged Professor Zainab Duke Abiola for attempted murder.
Charges against her also include culpable homicide, voluntarily causing hurt without provocation, and assault to deter public servant from discharge of his duty amongst others.
According to the Police Spokesperson, CSP. Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Professor would face the full wrath of the law.
According to Adejobi in a statement Prof. Zainab Duke Abiola was complicity in the grievous assault of a female Police Officer, Inspector Teju Moses on Tuesday 20th September, 2022 at her residence in Garki, Abuja.
According to the Police Spokesperson, the Professor committed the offence along with her domestic staff including the housemaid, one Rebecca Enechido, and a male suspect currently at large.
“He added that the FCT Police Command has charged the suspects to court upon diligent investigation, and the case with charge no. CR/544/22 is ongoing and the next hearing will come up on February 1, 2023 at High Court 16, Zuba, FCT Abuja.
According to him, “The recent media row by the suspect is therefore unnecessary as the matter has not been concluded in court. It is similarly pertinent to note that the spurious allegations recently made in the news hold no water.”
