Yemi Ayeni, the man who was seen in a viral video, flogging a policewoman at her duty post, has been arrested.
According to Vanguardngr, the 32-year-old man has been terrorising residents of Shibiri and its environs in Lagos, masquerading as a soldier in the Nigerian Army.
His dastardly act reached its peak over the weekend, after he beat up a policewoman who was controlling traffic.
According to Vanguard, the policewoman, Inspector Maltina Oyinchi, had stopped a commercial bus that obstructed traffic at the bus-stop.
Ayeni was said to have jumped out and demanded to know why the policewoman should stop the commercial bus, seeing he was seated in front.
In the process, he was said to have started hitting her and at the same time asking her why she stopped a vehicle occupied by a soldier.
Policemen from Ilemba Hausa division, who got wind of the incident, later rushed to the scene to find their beaten colleague still holding on to the suspect, preventing him from escaping.
During interrogation, Ayeni was discovered not to be a soldier after all. Rather, he claimed to have been disqualified at the entry-level into the Military.
The suspect according to the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Elkana Bala, would be charged to court for assault. 📸: Vanguardngr
