A concerned social media user has recently used his platform to cry out on behalf of some ladies whom he claimed were arrested and assaulted by officers of the Nigerian Police Force.
The man identified as M. M Obono (@martObono), shared the plight of the ladies on micro blogging platform Twitter. According to him, about 70 ladies were reportedly arrested and taken to the Utako police station, following a similar arrest that had taken place on the night of Friday, April 26, in Abuja.
He said the arrest of the ladies was simply because they were rounded up for clubbing and for some others among them, prostitution.
"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 offense; clubbing and in some instance, prostitution." he said.
