A police officer stormed his daughter’s secondary school in Ado-Ekiti on Friday in company of his colleagues to assault teachers. A female teacher was stripped naked in the melee.
Sergeant Agenoise Elijah stormed Mary Immaculate Girls’ Grammar School in Ado-Ekiti with four other officers to protest the audacity of the authorities for reprimanding and disciplining his daughter for wearing a different hairstyle from the prescribed one.
The police officer allegedly harassed the principal, tore the dress of a female tutor and seized the mobile of another.
The incident reportedly caused confusion in the school as both teachers and students took to their heels.
The Police Command in Ekiti said it has launched an investigation into alleged attack by five of its personnel.
Spokesman Sunday Abutu said “the command is not unaware of the reported case of indiscipline at Mary Immaculate Girls’ School, Ado-Ekiti.
“They were said to have harassed the teachers simply because his daughter, who is one of the students, was questioned about the style of her hair-cut which was not inline with the school directive.
The police said the police officer and his colleagues, who went to the School to cause chaos, have been identified and “discreet investigation” as ordered by the police commissioner has commenced, assuring that the officers shall not be spared if found guilty.
“The command is also working tenaciously with the state Ministry of Education to ensure that no stone is left unturned concerning the case.
“The CP in the state is appealing to those who were victims of the officers’ misbehaviour to be calm and patient as we shall ensure that the investigation process is not compromised,” the police spokesman said.
