See What These Sex Workers Did To A Policewoman As They Resist Arrest In Lagos
A policewoman attached to Zone D Command
in Mushin, was beaten by sex workers in a
popular hotel in the Papa Ajao area of Lagos.
She was allegedly trying to arrest the ladies
while they resisted and then beat her in the
Sources report that the police sergeant
identified as Ihuoma Njoku while performing her
lawful duties made the attempt to arrest one
25-year old Cherish John who tore her uniform
and bathed her with a glass of beer she was
drinking during the scuffle.
It was gathered that the suspect and other sex
workers were angry that the police came to
disrupt their businesses during the period they
usually expected their clients in the evening. It
was learnt that the police stormed the hotel to
arrest the workers and they resisted.
However, everything became messy after the
victim was attacked and the police mobilised
other officers who eventually arrested Miss
John who was alleged to be behind the attack
and detained her at the police station.
She was charged before Isolo Magistrates court
for conspiracy to commit felony and assault.
She pleaded not guilty.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O.A. Adedayo
granted her bail in the sum of N100,000 with
one surety in like sum. She was remanded in
prison custody pending when she will perfect
her bail condition.
However, the suspect denied the allegation that
she was involved in beating the policewoman.
According to her, it was just a minor agreement
at the hotel, but the police decided to implicate
her just because she was the one that spear-
headed the entire scuffle.
She went further to say that it wasn’t that she
was delighted doing such work but she had no
other means to survive and according to her,
the Police are always at the hotel to disrupt
their activities despite the fact that the
management of the hotel settles them from time
