Governor Ayo Fayose Raises Panel To Probe Police Assault On Nursing Mother In Ado-Ekiti
Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose on Sunday night announced his government’s interest in the case of a woman beaten by some policemen in Ado Ekiti on Friday.
Fayose made this known while speaking on a monthly public enlightenment programme, “The Governor Explains”.
He disclosed that an investigation panel has been set up to probe what actually transpired between the woman and the police.
He said the investigation will unravel the policemen that beat the woman.
The governor said he was particularly disturbed by media reports linking policemen to the alleged beating of the woman, Toyin Adeyeye, despite her status as a nursing mother.
He described as regrettable, the police action, coming barely two weeks after the state celebrated Women’s Day with fanfare.
The governor declared that the law on violence against women still subsists in the state, and that the law would be applied as appropriate in this matter. -PUNCH
