A Nigerian academician identified as Professor Dike Zainab has been arrested by the Police in Abuja for allegedly ordering the assault of her female police orderly.

DISTURBING NEWS: Reports of one Prof Dike Zainab of Area 11 in Abuja who allegedly assaulted her Police Orderly & also ordered her maids to beat her up. Thorough investigation & prosecution of the culprits will serve as deterrent to others. Totally inhumane & unacceptable!!!
