The Ogun State Police Command has arrested the policemen who allegedly beat up a former headmistress of Top-Teez Nursery and Primary School, Ifo, Mrs. Ayodeji Orojo.
The state Commissioner of Police, Ahmad Iliyasu, told our correspondent on Tuesday that the cops had been arrested and detained.
He noted that the policemen would be sanctioned at the end of police investigation.
PUNCH Metro had reported that a stabiliser belonging to the Ojodu Abiodun Divisional Police Officer had been stolen by some hoodlums and the police found the electrical appliance in the compound of a 10-year-old pupil, identified as David.
Six policemen were reported to have stormed the boy’s school where Orojo served as a head teacher, disrupting academic activities in the process.
Orojo, who queried their action, was allegedly beaten up, as her phone was seized after she allegedly attempted to record the attack.
It was reported that the police later released David after his widowed mother, Elizabeth Emeka, paid N19,000 for bail.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, had said the police did not know the suspect was a 10-year-old pupil, adding that the DPO had apologised to the school’s proprietress and the matter had been resolved.
Orojo, in a follow-up report, however, demanded that the the cops be punished.
She lamented that her seized phone was smashed and her SIM and memory cards damaged by the police to destroy evidence.
The Ogun State Commissioner for Education, Modupe Mujota, had told our correspondent that the state was investigating the case “from the perspective of it being a part of our educational ecosystem.”
