The arrest of Keswani who allegedly assaulted Nwaneri in August, came following the intervention of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, led by its Coordinator, Lola Vivour-Adeniyi, after the victim's family reported the matter to her office in Alausa.

Keswani was arrested by the police operatives from the Adeniji Adele Division after evading arrest for over six weeks.

Recall that Nwaneri's brother, Chukwuka Ignatius, had brought the case of the assault to the public on August 12, 2016, when he narrated how his sister was beaten up by the Indian man for reporting to work late.

The victim suffered facial injuries and severe trauma after the attack and the case was reported to the Ikoyi Police Division but when policemen went to the Island to invite him for interrogation, they were prevented from going in to serve him notice by the security men.

“The police arrested him on Tuesday. He was nabbed by the Adeniji Adele division. He was tracked to his house. When the suspect discovered that the police were on the lookout for him, he initially fled."
