A man, Chijioke Okeiyi, 47, has fondled a policewoman’s breast at the Isheri Oshun Police Division in Lagos. Reports say Okeiyi, who had been locked in a cell for fighting his neighbours, committed the act when the policewoman, Adesina Adefoluke, had been trying to rescue him from his cell mates who had attacked him.
Okeiyi was reported to have stumbled out of the cell and grabbed Adefoluke’s breasts, tearing her uniform in the process. He told the Ejigbo Magistrates Court that he was almost unconscious when he was rescued from his cell mates. He denied fondling her breasts saying his hand had merely landed on them when he was being brought out of the cell.
LKJ Layeni, the presiding Magistrate, granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum. He was remanded in prison pending the perfection of his bail.
