Feb 9, 2017 – UBA Banker Who Attacked Police DPO Uniform In Marina Lagos Charged

A staff of the United Bank for Africa, 28-year-old Adaobi Obi has been charged for assaulting a police DPO on duty.

The attack reportedly happened around 6pm on January 27 at UBA headquarters in Marina on Lagos Island.

Obi was accused of tearing DPO Sina Olunlade after he prevented her from driving in an area because an electric pole fell on the road after a heavy rainfall.

The DPO on duty ordered motorists to take a safer route for their own safety but the accused refused because the route is closer to her home.

She was granted bail in the sum of N200,000 today after she pleaded not guilty to the assault.

Obi is to appear in court on the 28th of February for hearing.

  1. The police officer should have let her drive through and get electrocuted for her stubbornness. This is how some people behave and later will turn around to blame the police for not directing them. Adaobi the policeman was trying to save your life and you assaulted him. That would have been the quickest way for you to depart this world by driving across that live electrical wire. It looks like you are tired of this world. Ungrateful people like you are not worth anybody’s sympathy.

  2. Uzoma you are very right, we sometimes need to control our anger even if we feel disatisfied with a situation. Adaobi Obi also seem ignorant of the laws that give the police the absolute authority of protecting life and properties and, the police in question could have also been charged for negligence of duty if he hadn’t insisted in protecting Obi’s life by preventing her from driving through the barricaded road. The most damning part of Obi’s offence is tearing the officer’s uniform and still arrogantly claiming no regret or guilty of the offence. Judges are human beings like everyone else but who are by their calling empowered to interprete the laws and enforce punishment however, could also; despite what the law says, tamper justice with mercy if the Judge has all the reasons to believe the offender acted ignorantly (though not an excuse in law) and accepts guilt with a genuing demeanure of regret. The Judge could ignore the option of custodian sentence and caution Adaobi with as little fine and be allowed to walk free with a warning to be of good behaviour. Hope Adaobi will have a re-think and change her not guilty plea to a plea of guilt with explanation and also plead for mercy.
