The operational police officer attached to Isheri-Oshun division, Supol Agu Philip wasÂ recently battered by a suspect, Yekini Sulaimon.Â He was later docked in court andÂ ordered to be remanded in prison.
It was gathered that 32-year old Yekini had gone to the station to bail his friend whoÂ was involved in a criminal matter.
On interrogation, the IPO discovered that he has to make certain clarification on certainÂ issues concerning his suspect friend.
He was taken to the operational officer, who is now re-cuperating from the shock andÂ injury he sustained from the attack for interrogation. Instead of providing answers toÂ the Supolâ€™s questions he decided to attack him to escape.
He was eventually rearrested and charged to Ejigbo magistrateâ€™s court for assault andÂ conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace.
The offence, according to the police is contrary to section 249 of the Criminal Code CapÂ 17 Vol.2 Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2003.
