Suspect Batters SUPOL


The operational police officer attached to Isheri-Oshun division, Supol Agu Philip was  recently battered by a suspect, Yekini Sulaimon.  He was later docked in court and  ordered to be remanded in prison.

It was gathered that 32-year old Yekini had gone to the station to bail his friend who  was involved in a criminal matter.

On interrogation, the IPO discovered that he has to make certain clarification on certain  issues concerning his suspect friend.

He was taken to the operational officer, who is now re-cuperating from the shock and  injury he sustained from the attack for interrogation. Instead of providing answers to  the Supol’s questions he decided to attack him to escape.
