He tweeted, “Yesterday, July 24, 2022, at about 2:30 pm, police officers of Ipaja Division flagged down a Mercedes Benz car for not having number plates at Oluwaga-Ipaja. A passenger, Mrs Adebayo Ayobami aggressively and disdainfully questioned why the police officers stopped her husband and not other vehicles.
“She, thereafter, declined to answer any question. In an attempt to get them to the station for further questioning owing to their unprovoked aggressiveness and suspicious behaviour, she and her husband, Ayobami Clinton assaulted the police officers. The car was impounded. They were arraigned today, and the court remanded them at Kirikiri prison.”
