According to the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Femi Joseph, the officer would be arraigned in court. He also explained what led to the situation.

He said, “The policemen stopped the students on patrol on Sunday night, and when they were asked to open the bag they held, they refused, that was what caused an argument between them, leading to one of them to slightly push the lady. But because the lady was drunk, she fell down and got injured.

“In spite of that, as I am speaking with you now, the policeman in question has been arrested and will face trial today ( Tuesday). He would definitely be punished. ”
