A Nigerian Twitter user, @ms___dale, has gone on the social media platform to seek help in fighting off someone she claims attempted to kill her mother.
According to the lady, her mum was cut in the head and stabbed on the neck by a man and the case is being manipulated by a police officer family member of the suspect.
Dale, who is a content creator, shared graphic photos of the injuries her mum sustained after the incident, as she pleaded for help from the Twitter community.
She wrote: "Please, who knows how I can reach @segalink. It’s urgent, someone attempted to murder my mom; he butchered her on the head & stabbed her on the neck. He’s been arrested but the case seems like one that might be manipulated as the perpetrator has a family member in the police force."
Following her outcry, human rights activists, Segun Awosanya, and head of police complaint response unit, Markus Ishaku Basiran, have taken up the case.
In an update on the thread hours later, Segalink noted that the case had been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad Dugbe, Ibadan, where investigations will continue.
