The Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ikenne Division of Ogun State, Patrick Onwu, went wild and beat up a female traffic officer for allegedly stopping his private vehicle on Monday. The DPO, who was on mufti while he disobeyed the traffic law, was said to have driven into a nearby filling station, parked and changed into his police uniform to prove to the lady that she was challenging a senior officer. He came back, pounced on the female traffic warden, Inspector Anifat Bello, with serious beatings.
When contacted the state Police PRO, Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident and said the Commissioner of Police was unhappy with the DPO and had directed that the matter be investigated. He said: “The woman traffic officer has reported the matter to the CP and he has directed that the matter be thoroughly investigated. The CP was not happy when the woman came with a swollen face. If the allegation is true, I am very sure the CP will know what to do.”
