Annankwu is being charged with two counts of assault and breach of peace.

The police prosecuting officer, Sgt. Kenrich Nomayo, told the court that the accused, who committed the act on November 28, caused a breach of peace by unlawfully videoing Insp. Eche Adeyi and his team. 

He said the accused, along with three others, were stopped by the complainant but initially refused to stop and they refused to wind down the window glass of their Honda Accord car.

Nomayo added that the action of the car occupants prompted the complainant and his team to search the car.

"During the search, the accused was caught secretly videoing the activities of the police with his phone.

"He obstructed the complainant and assaulted him while trying to arrest him," Nomayo told the court.

He said the offence contravened section 168 and 174 of the criminal law in the state.

The suspect, however, denied committing the crime which is punishable with three years imprisonment for assault according to section 174 of the criminal law.

Magistrate Mrs. T.O Ojo, in her ruling, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety. The case was adjourned till January 29, 2019.
