After being on the run for some days, a man who brutalized his sister-in-law, injuring her severely in the process, has been arrested in his hideout.
It was gathered that Alabi had brutalized the victim, Latifat Adeyemi with a spanner and flogged her with a cable in their house in the Ikorodu area of the state after she challenged him for breaking into her room and removing the air conditioner with the claim that it was consuming too much electricity.
In a statement from the Command, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Fatai Owoseni, had ordered that the run-away Alabi is arrested by all means and brought to book.
The statement signed by the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Supol Dolapo Badmos, read in part:
“The CP took up the matter and ordered that he should be fished out. He was arrested in his hideout in Ikorodu around 1.30pm."
"He struggled with the officials, but he has been arrested and the case transferred to the command headquarters. He will face charges if found culpable.”
