Nursing Mother, 2-Month-Old Baby Detained By Police For Refusing To Give Bribe

A nursing mother, Mrs. Toyin Adeyeye, and her two month old baby, Heritage, were detained by policemen in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital for allegedly refusing to offer bribe at a checkpoint.
According to Vanguard, the policemen also detained the mother’s younger brother and driver of the vehicle, Adeniyi Dada...
Narrating their ordeal, they said their vehicle had been stopped by policemen from New Iyin Police Station at a road block in front of the Ekiti Pavilion. After the routine check, they were asked to ‘settle’ before they could proceed; a proposal they flatly refused.
This drew the ire of the cops who descended on them, severely beating the woman’s brother before hauling them, along with their car to the New-Iyin Police Station.
The nursing mother, reportedly just returned from the United States where she had gone to deliver the baby.
Condemning the alleged brutality of the policemen, her husband,  Mr. Akanni Adeyeye, slept in the police station in solidarity with his wife.
Meanwhile, Ekiti State Chapter of Federation of International Women Lawyers (FIDA) has launched investigation into the matter, even as the state Commissioner of Police, Abdullahi Chafe, claimed they were investigating claims that Mrs. Adeyeye slapped a policeman on duty.
