In other news, a Magistrate court sitting in Ogba ordered that four persons, a music producer and three National Youth Corps members be remanded at the Kirikiri Maximum Correctional facility in Apapa, Lagos.

According to Lagos Police PPRO, Benjamin Hundeyin, the four were arrested after a video of them assaulting policemen went viral on social media.

The defendants were arraigned in court on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, for “serious assault” on officers.

They are 33-year-old producer, Ehis Tito Odigie, and Miracle Onukuoforobi, 27, a student of Igbinedion University.

According to the Lagos State Police Command, both parties had video recordings which were reviewed.
