Lecturer arrested over brutalisation of daughter’s rival



senior lecturer at the Federal University of Lafia, Nasarawa State, Dr. Fred Ayokhai, on Friday, brutalised a 20-year-old girl, Blessing Mathias, who allegedly fought his daughter over a man.

 Ayokhai, who lectures in the Department of History and International Studies alongside others suspected to be his family members was captured in a viral video stripping the victim naked.

 It was gathered that Blessing sometime last week confronted Ayokhai’s daughter, Emmanuella for trying to ‘snatch’ her boyfriend, simply identified as IG.

 She confronted Emmanuella in Lafia and had a fight with her after she found out that she had her boyfriend’s mobile and was chatting with him.

Confirming the incident in a statement on Saturday, the state police spokesperson, DSP Ramhan Nansel, said two suspects had been arrested in connection with the crime.

 He said, “Sequel to the viral tweet of assault on a female teenager in Lafia, Nasarawa State, the command swiftly commenced investigation into the case. It is gratifying to state that two suspects namely: Dr. Fred Ayokhai, an associate professor with the Department of History and International Studies, Federal University of Lafia and one Emmanuela Ayokhai have been arrested in connection with the case while the vehicle belonging to Dr Fred which was used in conveying the victim to a location along Kwandere road, Lafia where she was assaulted has been recovered. Preliminary investigation revealed that Emmanuela and the victim had a misunderstanding over a man named IG. The victim accused Emmanuela of snatching her supposed boyfriend and assaulted her. In retaliation, Emmanuela mobilised her family, went after the victim and got her assaulted as well.”

Nansel said that the Commissioner of Police, AIG Adesina Soyemi, had ordered a manhunt for the other fleeing suspects and further directed that those arrested should be charged to court for prosecution upon conclusion of investigation at the State Criminal Department, Lafia.
