April 14, 2016 – Pictures: Ikenne Police DPO Patrick Onwu Demoted To The Rank Of DSP For Beating Up Female Traffic Officer In Abeokuta Ogun State

IGP Arase has ordered the immediate demotion of Patrick Onwu, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ikenne who beat a traffic warden to coma on Monday.

As it stands, the DPO has been demoted to the rank of Deputy Superintendent of Police(DSP).

IGP learnt about the incident in the newspapers and immediately called Ogun State Police Commissioner and gave him the directives.

The alleged bully is also facing disciplinary actions.

This will serve as a warning to others like him who take pride in abuse of office.

  1. He is even lucky. Were I the IGP, I would have directly swapped him with the woman. And talking about the woman, what is her fate? Didn’t the IGP think it wise to compensate her?

  2. He should be demoted to constable,and start afresh again, hopefully this stand as a warning to those who abused power.

  3. Good 4 him..it’ll teach other uniform persons lessons of. Their lives not abuse people just bkoS they r in office.

  4. No no no IGP. This man committed grave professional misconduct, and that suppose to fetch him outright sack from the police force. Even from his outlook one can perceive some elements of brutality,arrogance,and wickedness
    And I doubt he is going to change even after the demotion.

  5. hmmmmm patrick onwu see what you have cause to yourself and your family, is this how you beat your wife at home bcos if not you will not be bold enough to beat a woman while performing her official duty. i think all the officer will learn from his mistake,and i pray the lord will have mercy on you ijmn

  6. Good riddance! Exactly my suggestion the other day. But they should have demoted him to an ordinary constable and his permanent post should be at the gate.

    Foolish man who taught that beating up a woman is a way of displaying masculinity.
    Maybe thats how he bullys his wife at home and he now sees every other woman as a subject to molestation.

    Question is…how about the molested female traffic warden fairing??

    My strolling…..

  7. Serves him right. But that’s a part at the back. The woman should charge him to court for assault. Where are FIDA, and other similar NGOs? They should come out and fight this course.

  9. That dpo is an animal bcos he did same action in total feeling station ikenne,he was beating everyone both elderly and young one with belt. We want the ogun state commissioner of police to use his good office to transfer this type of dpo out from our good town…..thanks

  10. We should be very very careful the way we discharge our duties. Oga DPO it is a pity, this serve as a lesson to other people not matter who you are and the office you occupy.

    IGP Solomon Arase may God bless you Sir, remain bless.

  11. na him wife swear for him. maybe he also stop beating his house wife as well bcos this should be a lesson for him.

  12. LL,i like waht u said,they should transfar him to Bama or baga local Govt of Brono state after demoted,he will try, power with Boko Harams Men,not women.anyway IGP i really thank u,for quick action,only God know hwo he beat his wife and kids @ home.

  15. Other police officers like the now demoted P. Onwu will learn from this and note that under para L (i) of the First Schedule of Police Regulation 355 of 1968 is still in force.

  16. He should thank God that it’s not sack, but pity the family becos what they used to enjoy will reduce drastically. Shia! God dey.

  17. Very good. The idiot(Floyd Mayweather) has been demoted, he should also pay for damages. This will serve as lesson to other with pride

  18. demoting him is not enough punishment, he should also face criminal charges in court for aggravated battery. if he is that powerful, he should have voluntarily joined the Nigerian army to fight boko haram. Animal in human clothing

  19. IGP Arase himself needs to be sacked by president Mohammed Buhari for his poor judgment and lack of leadership in this case. You ordered just rank demotion of a criminal police officer who publicly bullied and battered an innocent woman on the road for doing her job. Shame on this stupid IGP for accommodating a criminal, indiscpline and senseless officers like DPO Patrick Onwu in NPF. A man of that terrible character and bad temper should not be among Nigerian Police Force after humiliatiing a female traffic warden on the road before the general public. Is high time that criminals pay high price for crimes against innocent people in Nigeria. If the woman in question was IGP Arase’s mother, sister, wife or daughters, would he ordered Officer Patrick to be demoted from DPO to DSP? The answer is capital “No”. This is a shame of a nation and Nigerian Police Force.

  20. I think d IGP is too lenient wit d bastard…He shld b investigated nd afterwards,b dismissed outrightly…There were many of his kinds in d police force that were power drunk.His dismissal should hv serve as deterrent to others.As for d woman,she should b compensated nd d animal in human skin b made to foot her medical bill.

  21. Hmm ,Mr Onwu was a 9ce man when I knew hmmm at Ikene ,I no that what happen to him was not ordinary eye but I no that my god will c him thru ,I’m so sorry for what happen to u Mr Onwu ..

  22. Stupid, the government should have him demoted to zero, then arrest and lock him up. What the heck is mere demotion? Ojoro! Make them beat am for prison well well.
