Oct 7, 2016 – Hot Tempered Woman Jailed For Slapping Police Officers In Benin Edo State 

Oredo Magistrates’ Court in Benin on Thursday sentenced a 35-year-old woman, Mrs Oduwa Egbenayabuwa to two years imprisonment for allegedly assaulting police officers while performing their lawful duties.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. RacheaI Ogbevoen who convicted the accused person, after finding her guilty of a two-count charge of related assault, however, gave her an option of N30,000 fine.

Earlier, the police prosecutor, Inspector Patrick Agbonifo said the offence was committed on October 31, 2015, with the accused person, Egbenayabuwa assaulting Inspector Isaikpere Alfred by giving him a slapping on his back while he was performing his lawful duty.

He said that the accused person also gripped F/No 502635 P/C Wose Azubike uniform and tore it while he was also on his lawful duty.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened Section 356(2) of the Criminal Code Cap. 48 Vol. 11 laws of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria 1976 now applicable in Edo.

Earlier, the accused person appealed to the court for leniency, adding that it was her first appearance in court.

  1. Na stupidity to slap Police o! You no do anything Police de catch you so wetin you expect when you slap am?
    Police job is more thankless than any other job. They put their life on the line for citizens so nobody should disrespect or mistreat Police.
    The lady is lucky to have option of fine!

  2. this woman u get mind oooooo am very sure that what u do to husband @ home. see how u disgrace urslf. to the police una own too much.

  3. Really…what transpired between the two of them wasn’t made known..so don’t jump to conclusion…If you’ve been harassed by this so called policemen before then you won’t jump into conclusion…but sha madam…hmmm…whatsoever the police guy do u…you for handle ahm jèJè now…haba…

  4. That woman must somhow be related to Tiwa Savage.
    I‘m no supporter of voilence but the question is, why is it that the day Tiwa equally slapped a police officer on the way and nothing came out of that case till date? Or is it she‘s a celeb or what?

    Another thing is why does it seem as if everybody in apportioning blames on the woman without first hear her own side of the story? The woman in question was not insane to have slapped the police man just like that so what transpired between them?

    That you are wearing a NPF uniform does not give you the right to trample on people‘s Rights. I really believe that something led to the whole drama.
    In Nigerian there is no justice!

    The rich and famous always get away with whatever crimes they committed even if its a murder case, just like Ibinabo the other time.

    I take a stroll…
