An Islamic cleric, Alfa Moshood Alabi, has been arrested by the Kwara State Police command for allegedly beating one of his students to coma over stealing of a locally made safe, otherwise known as ”Kolo.”
It was gathered that the Ilorin-based Islamic cleric had been on the run after the case was reported to the police by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in the state.
His arrest was, however, effected by officers and men of the Oloje Police Division, Ilorin after the case was reported.
The Police in a statement said that the matter would be transferred to the Gender-Based Violent Unit of the Police Command in Ilorin as soon as investigation was concluded.
The victim, it was learnt, is still at a private hospital in Ilorin, where he is said to be recuperating.
