A court sitting in Lagos State has remanded a man and his wife in prison for assaulting police officers and resisting arrest.
The incident was made known to the Spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin on Twitter.
He said the couple who were commuting in a Mercedes-Benz C Class were stopped around the Ipaja area of Lagos, for not having a plate number, when the woman pounced on the police officer and started slapping him.
“Yesterday, July 24, 2022 at about 2:30pm, police officers of Ipaja Division flagged down a Mercedes Benz car for not having number plates at Oluwaga-Ipaja.
“A passenger, Mrs Adebayo Ayobami aggressively and disdainfully questioned why the police officers stopped her husbandand not other vehicles.
“She, thereafter declined to answer any question. In an attempt to get them to the station for further questioning owing to their unprovoked aggressiveness and suspicious behavior, she and her husband, Ayobami Clinton assaulted the police officers.
“The car was impounded. They were arraigned today; and the court remanded them at Kirikiri prison.
