The 25-year-old commercial sex worker allegedly assaulted an officer of the law
An alleged prostitute in Lagos has been arrested and charged to court after she was accused of assaulting a police officer.
25-year-old Anita Mbewu is said to have torn the uniform of one ASP Michael Udoh while he was carrying out his official duties.
According to Leadership, the Prosecutor, Cpl. John Iberedem, told the court
“The complainant said he learnt that the commercial sex workers in the hotel usually hid hoodlums and criminals so he decided to lead a team to raid the hotel.
“While they were searching for the hoodlums, Udoh saw the accused smoking a cigarette in public and ordered her to put it out.
“She refused and the policeman attempted to remove it from her lips, but as he drew close to her, Mbewu just grabbed him and tore his uniform,”
The accused however pleaded not guilty to the charges.
