The Lagos State Police Command on Friday arrested Kaveh Noine, a manager with Toppan Printing Company, who was said to have kicked his pregnant subordinate, Alice Ossai, in the stomach two weeks ago, causing her to lose her 7-month-old pregnancy.
According to Lagos State Police command: “In the course of our investigation, we discovered that Noine was still in the country; he had fled to Kano. Our men traced him to Kano, arrested him and have brought him back to Lagos. Presently, he is making his statement now at the command. The issue of [his] bail has not come up for now.”
After the story broke on Tuesday, President Goodluck Jonathan, three days later, directed that the police and the National Human Rights Commission investigate the matter, expressing his displeasure over the incident.
Lagos Police PRO Ngozi Braide said, “Even before President Goodluck Jonathan ordered an investigation into the case, the Lagos State Police Command has been on it.”
34-year-old Alice, a mother of one, was said to have developed pains in her tummy which lasted for two days before subsiding. The pains were said to have begun again in the early hours of December 16, 2013, resulting into an emergency surgery at a private hospital at Fagba.
Her seven-month pregnancy was lost as a result of the kicks she got from the Lebanese man.
She also disclosed that Noine was in the habit of physically assaulting workers at the company with anything he could lay his hands on, whenever he is angry.
