A viral video on social media has shown an officer of the Nigeria Police Force battling for her life after she was allegedly beaten up by the maids of a professor she was attached to in Abuja.
The assaulted officer told sympathizers that she was an orderly to one Prof. Dike Zainab who ordered her maids to deal with her.
In the video sighted online by Naija News, the policewoman was panting and begging to be taken to a hospital as she had already lost some blood from the injury inflicted on her by the said Professor.

The force command has, however, reacted to the incident following calls for justice by Nigerians on social media.
Reacting to the incident via his official Twitter page, Force Public Relations Officer, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the accused person and her maids have all been arrested.
