BRIEF - Music producer, NYSC members sent to Kirikiri for assaulting policemen

 Four citizens have been remanded at the Kirikiri Maximum Correctional facility in Apapa, Lagos.

They are Ehis Tito Odigie, a 33-year-old music producer, and Miracle Onukuoforobi, 27, an Igbinedion University student.

Others include 26-year-old Oyedeji Motunrayo and 31-year-old Bolade Richard, both corps members.

The quartet was arraigned on Tuesday at the Magistrate Court, Ogba; the case adjourned till October 10, 2022.

The police took them to court for “serious assault” on officers, said spokesman SP Benjamin Hundeyin.

In the recorded incident, the civilians engaged a team of operatives in fisticuffs.

One of the defendants is seen pushing off a policeman’s cap; he later seized it after picking it from the ground.

The Lagos Command confirmed that both parties had video recordings which were reviewed.

“The police officers too are undergoing questioning. Investigation is ongoing.

“One thing remains sure: everyone, police inclusive, found culpable will face the law,” Hundeyin added.
