Police Service Commission reacts to attack on female officer, Teju Moses. The attack on Insp. Teju Moses, a female Police Orderly assigned to Prof. Zainab Abiola, was deemed cruel and inhumane by the Police Service Commission (PSC) on Friday.
In a statement released in Abuja, Mr. Ikechukwu Ani, the PSC’s Head of Press and Public Relations, said that the attack on Teju posed a direct danger to national security and was an intentional attempt to disparage the Nigeria Police Force and the values it upholds.
Ani demanded that the Special Protection Unit’s actions be reviewed and that all those engaged in the show of humiliation immediately be investigated and prosecuted (SPU).
The call, according to the PSC spokesman, was made to make sure that only a select number of Nigerians who legitimately deserve such protection received
The Commission disapproves of the way Nigerians mistreat Police Orderlies, using them as status symbols or turning them into domestic helpers who clean, cook, and perform menial tasks. “With security issues plaguing the country, it is vital to release numerous Police Officers lurking in private homes and pursuing powerful folks.”
Ani likewise pleaded on the police command to swiftly halt the practice and focus its resources on policing and safeguarding vulnerable Nigerians.
Recall that Rebecca and a male suspect who is still at large are accused of brutally attacking Teju.
Prof. Zainab Duke Abiola and her domestic workers, including the housekeeper Rebecca Enechido, who attacked a female police officer, Inspector Teju Moses, have been lodged in the Suleja Correctional Complex, the FCT Police Command stated on Friday.
