Detectives in Lagos have arrested six persons for allegedly beating a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Ikorodu, Lagos State while he was on his way to perform his official duty.

 The police prosecutor, Sergeant Mary Ajiteru, told the Ikorodu magistrate’s court that the accused committed the offences on October 26, 2017 along Agunfoye Road, Igbogbo in Ikorodu at about 12.45a.m.

 Ajiteru said the accused battered their victim, Superintendent of Police Issah Lawal of the Igbogbo police station.

 The suspects were yesterday arraigned before Magistrate A.B. Adelabu-Olagbegi on a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, unlawful assault and causing a breach of the peace.  They all pleaded not guilty to the charges.
