Nigerians Twitter have now launched an attack on a lecturer of the Federal University, Lafia in Nasarawa State, Dr Fred Ekpe Ayokhai, for attacking a lady for fighting his daughter over a man.
In videos posted by a tweep, Agatha Akaahar, Ayokhai the lecturer was spotted with his children assaulting and stripping the lady identified as Blessing Mathias.
Before being assaulted, Mathias had beaten the lecturer’s daughter, Emmanuella for allegedly trying to snatch her boyfriend.
Daily Trust reports that their fight ensued after she discovered that Nuella had her boyfriend’s number in her phone, which she refused to delete.
The said lady was said to have gathered her friends to beat Emmanuella. She was seen slapping Emmanuella and hitting her from different angles, asking her to delete the number.
After some days, Emmanuella in the company of her father, Ayokhai, and her siblings, attacked Mathias in retaliation.
As captured in a viral video, Ayokhai used scissors to cut off Mathias’s cloth after being driven to an unknown destination.
Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, in an update on Saturday revealed that the Nasarawa State police command was investigating and would provide details soon.
In a tweet, the Nasarawa State police command stated that two of the suspects had been arrested.
It said, “Sequel to the viral tweet of assault on a female teenager in Lafia, Nasarawa State, the Command swiftly commenced an investigation into the case.
“It is gratifying to state that two suspects have been arrested in connection with the case while the vehicle used in conveying the victim to an undisclosed location where she was assaulted has been recovered.
“Effort is ongoing to arrest the remaining suspects still at-large.”
Meanwhile, Twitter users are reacting to the incident. Below are some of such comments:
