A female police officer who got inside a vehicle to harass one of its occupants, reportedly tore her uniform in a bid to implicate the original victim.
The incident which occurred around the Igbogila Health center in Ayobo Ipaja area of Lagos State was posted by artist cum activist, Rugged man, via his official Instagram account.
According to him, the police woman, Omolara Sunday, works with the Alagolo Police Station, and is said to have carried out the act in a vehicle belonging to Lanre Adediwura, a fairly known filmmaker.
Rugged Man stated, “The video clearly shows her beating a pregnant Cecelia Adeniji. To make matters worse, Officer Omolara Sunday and her colleagues framed Lanre and the pregnant Cecelia for assault, took them to Ejigbo Magistrate Court 2, after Isheri, where the judge adjourned the case and ordered them to be remanded in Police custody until they process their bail and be set free.”
Rugged man further stated that the police woman, Omolara Sunday, “defied court orders and illegally took Lanre and pregnant Cecelia to Kirikiri Maximum Prison, where they stayed for 24 hours.”
