Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu has been called upon to protect a woman Inspector, Olufunke Adebayo, who is currently in detention at the Area F Police Command, Ikeja.
Her counsel, Mr G. I. Ukaegbu, said Inspector Adebayo, a medical practitioner at the Police Hospital, Ikeja, is undergoing brutalisation and torture in the cell at Area F for alleged sexual abuse and for refusing to reveal the location of her husband, Michael Adebayo.
Ukaegbu pleaded with Muazu to use his position to save the life of Inspector Adebayo before she dies in Police cell at Area F, Ikeja.
In a petition by the lawyer to the Police Commissioner entitled Barbaric Human Rights Abuse: Petition Against the Area Commander Area F, Ukaegbu said: “In the course of torturing the woman, she slumped and was about to die when her colleagues raised alarm and the woman Inspector was rushed to the hospital.”
