Office of the Ogun state police command has denies arresting a 24-Year-old Olanipekun Oladayo Irenimofe, who is a student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, for buying a pregnancy test kit and contraceptive.
This statement of denial came after Oladayo’s elder sister took to micro-blogging platform, twitter, to raise alarm after her younger sister was “arrested”
“My sister, a student of Mapoly just got arrested for going to buy postpill and pregnancy strip. She’s at a police post in Abeokuta.”
In subsequent tweets, she revealed that her sister had been released, but that policemen went searching for her again. Olukoya later tweeted that police went to arrest the pharmacist who sold the products to her sister.
“Please help oooo, she just told me they’ve gone to arrest the pharmacist that sold them to her.”
However, the state police command PRO, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the police were doing their duties by questioning her on whether she had a doctor’s prescription or not.
“The command has released her since morning. She was questioned if she has a doctor’s prescription.” he said
