It was gathered that the female officer, while controlling traffic, had allegedly flagged down Onwu’s car as he approached the junction, and he stormed out in anger and beat her up for daring to stop a superior officer, leaving her with a swollen face.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, said in a press statement that the state Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, was unhappy about the incident and had directed that the matter be thoroughly investigated.

The CP was not happy when the woman came with a swollen face. If the allegation is true, I am very sure the CP will know what to do,” Ogunjobi said.
