Mr Femi Opebiyi, the father of 15-year-old Abigail Opebiyi who was assaulted by her madam, has asked for the case against his daughter’s abuser, Mrs Tolu Olaoye, to be dropped.

32-year-old Mrs Tolu Olaoye, a lawyer and member of her church choir, allegedly assaulted her maid on December 1, 2017, then kept the girl indoors to ensure no one saw the injury inflicted on the girl’s head. It wasn’t until December 14 that neighbours of the lawyer became aware of the injury and they shared photos of the girl online which then caught the attention of the Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi.

Olaoye was arrested on Friday and was taken into the custody of the gender section of the state police command in Ikeja. She appeared before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court on Monday where she pleaded not guilty to two counts of assault.

Olaoye’s counsel told the court that the victim’s father, Femi Opebiyi, had agreed to withdraw the case, a move the father corroborated before the court. After standing the case down for some minutes, the presiding magistrate, Mrs. B.O. Osunsanmi, later adjourned the case till February 1, 2018, for report of settlement.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.

Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.

“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”

It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”

The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
