A housewife in Iwo, Osun State, Halima Abdulazeez, was at home during the stay-at-home order by the Osun State Government to prevent spread of coronavirus in the state until the morning of Saturday, April 18, when her two-year-old daughter suddenly took ill. She had ear discharges which caused her discomfort.
With only one option to buy a drug at a nearby pharmacy located in Odo Ori, Abdulazeez hurriedly left the house
However, before she could reach her destination, she encountered two policemen, Inspector Taiwo Ikuesan and a constable, Abass Ibrahim, enforcing the government stay-at-home order, who demanded to know where she was going.
Punch news, gathered that the woman had yet to explain where she was headed before the cops started whipping her.
The victim, a Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria Training School-trained broadcaster, was unable to get the drug she left home for. Rather, she ended up in a hospital as a result of wounds she sustained from the whipping.
Abdulazeez however commended the Osun State Police Commissioner, Johnson Kokumo, for his prompt- action to ensure justice for her, after the arrest of the cops.
