A lawyer and activist has on twitter posted about the actions of men of the Nigeria Police Force who arrested over 70girls and took the to an Utako police station in Abuja. This is coming just days after a nightclub in the FCT was raided by policemen with over 30 girls arrested and accused of prostitution by the police.
The lawywer identified as Martin Obono, posted on twitter saying:
“As I type, 70 girls were arrested and brought to Utako Police station last night. This is in addition to the ones who were arrested on Friday night. Their offence; clubbing and in some instance, prostitution. Some have been assaulted with injuries in their V*g*nas.
“One of the ladies arrested has a 2-month old baby. She wasn’t allowed to breastfeed her baby by CRO in charge on duty despite continuous plea amidst tears. It took the intervention of a female police officer who called the DPO to overrule the decision of the inspector at the time.
“The joint task force that arrested some of these girls have been allegedly molesting and assaulting them. Some even showed the bruises and bleeding in their V*g*nas,”
