A tenant to whom three female policewomen were called by her landlady to arrest in Benin, Edo State allegedly spearhead their beating and striping to their birthday suits. The misdemeanour happened at Oregbeni quarters in Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area, while the police came from Oregbeni police division.
