Police Arrest Motorist For Assaulting Officer

Spokesman of the command, Benjamin Hundeyin disclosed this in a tweet on his official twitter handle on Friday.

In the video which was also contained in Hundeyin’s tweet, Tokunbo was seen dragging a police officer in uniform with a rifle on his back.

According to him, Tokunbo was immediately arrested and his Toyota Corolla car with registration number LSR 430 FT was equally impounded immediately.

He added that the suspect will be arraigned for his traffic offence and assault on a police officer.

“The suspect, Billy King Tokunbo, who drove against traffic, was immediately arrested. His Toyota Corolla car with registration number LSR 430 FT was equally impounded immediately. He is to be arraigned for his traffic offence and assault on a police officer. Updates to follow,” he tweeted.

Reacting in similar vein, the Force spokesman, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, took to his official twitter handle to frown at the act where some lawless members of the public always assault police officers on duty.

Adejobi said: “In as much as we strive hard to respect people’s dignity, rights, we deserve to be respected as well.”
