The Divisional Police Officer, DPO of Ebute-Ero division, Lagos SP Sina Olunlade has been hospitalized after being attacked and brutalized by Adaobi Obi, a female banker.
The strange incident happened in front of the United Bank for Africa, UBA headquarters in Marina Lagos where the Police boss went to perform his official duty.
According to P.M.EXPRESS, the police DPO suffered his fate after he attempted to prevent Obi from driving through a particular route due to an electricity pole that fell on the road after a rain storm.
However Obi was insistent on using the blocked route because it was closer to her office. This led to an exchange of words between them.
The lady reportedly grabbed and attacked the officer, before the other police officers around prevented her from further beating up the police DPO.
However, before he could be rescued, he had been badly injured and his uniform torn by Obi who reportedly displayed her anger and unbelievable strength on him. The injuries sustained as a result of the beating led to Olunlade’s hospitalization..
Obi was arrested by the policemen around and brought before Tinubu Magistrate’s court with accusations of “conduct likely to cause breach of public peace” and assault on the victim. She pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Ben Ekundayo voiced his anger by informing the court that the victim is the DPO who was attacked while on official duty which is a concrete reason Obi should be punished by law.
After listening to both parties, the presiding Magistrate, Mr. Ade Adefulire granted her bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.
She was thereafter remanded in prison custody pending when she will perfect her bail condition.
