April 12, 2016 – DPO Patrick Onwu Slaps, Beat Up Female Traffic Officer, Inspector Anifat Bello In Abeokuta For Flagging Down His Car
Female police inspector Anifat Bello is currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Abeokuta after a Divisional Police Officer in Ogun State, Patrick Onwu beat her to coma.
The attack happened yesterday after inspector Bello flagged down DPO Onwu’s car for going against traffic rule.
Eyewitnesses said that Onwu refused to yield to Bello’s command but instead drove into a nearby gas station, changed into his police uniform.
He soon drove back to where the female warden was carrying out her official duty and gave her several slaps before using a belt to whip her at Presidential Boulevard near NNPC junction in Abeokuta.
The attack which happened around 9am yesterday baffled motorists and bystanders who queued for fuel at NNPC mega station.
Some people around wondered why the traffic warden, who had been honoured several times for her commitment to duty, could be subjected to such ridiculous treatment. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo had some time recommended Bello for a national honour in recognition of her duty.
Patrick Onwu reportedly left Inspector Anifat Bello to her fate and left the scene of the attack.
The matter is currently in front of Ogun State Police Commissioner.
