Four people have been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly fighting police officers.
The four individuals were seen in a viral video assaulting a group of police officers.
However, the identified persons are now in police custody.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, in a statement on Saturday, August 27, said the suspects are two men and two women.
According to him, “No conclusions drawn yet. Both sides have video recordings, which will all be reviewed. All occupants of the car are currently at the station. They are: Ehis Tito Odigie ‘m’ aged 33, self-acclaimed music producer; Oyedeji Motunrayo ‘f’ aged 26, corps member; Miracle Onukuoforobi ‘f’ aged 27, undergraduate at Igbinedion University; and Bolade Richard ‘m’ aged 31, corps member.
“The police officers too are also undergoing questioning. Investigation is ongoing undoubtedly. One thing remains sure: everyone, police inclusive, found culpable will face the law!”
Meanwhile, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has revealed that it is mischievous to consider that he will resign for any contender in the 2023 election.
Equally important, Kwankwaso called the allegation “total garbage” when speaking with journalists in Maiduguri; the capital of Borno State, on Sunday, August 28, 2022.
“Some people are terribly mischievous…I don’t see how any of these four political parties at this critical time will accept joining one another. There are some elements making mischievous postings and insults on social media. But we believe in sportsmanship and we are out for a good campaign.
“To say NNPP will join or withdraw for APC or PDP is absolutely rubbish; it can’t happen.
”Some are envisaging that there will not be an outright winner in the first round of the presidential election but from our own camp, we believe that we are going to win during the first round of the presidential election because we have the people.”
