Oyewole pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge of breach of peace and assault.

The Prosecutor, ASP Clifford Ogu, said that the defendant conducted himself in a manner likely to cause breach of the peace by assaulting Sgt. Blessing Familokun while she was performing her lawful duty.

“The defendant’s wife went to the station to report the husband for beating her.
