The PUNCH reports that the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, condemned the alleged assault of a policewoman by the don and her domestic staff comprising the housemaid, Rebecca Enechido, and a male suspect currently at large.

The victim claimed that Duke, an activist, grievously assaulted her in the company of some accomplices on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at her residence in Garki, Abuja, due to her (policewoman) refusal to breach professional ethics by carrying out menial and domestic chores at her house.

The magistrate also ordered that she should be remanded in Suleja Prison pending the adjourned date.
