Lagos state police command arrest dismissed soldier caught on camera beating a female officer.
The police in Lagos have arrested a 32 year old dismissed soldier, Yemi Ayeni, who was filmed beating up a female police officer in the Shibiri area of the state last weekend.
Ayeni who is known to terrorise residents of the area under the guise he is a military officer, was arrested following his encounter with the female officer.
When interrogated, he said he was dismissed from service. He said he was disqualified at entry level into the military.
“I am a dismissed soldier. I was dismissed after training for four months because anytime someone shouted at me, I would feel somehow. They said I had a medical problem and told me to leave.
I don’t know what came over me on Sunday. I was inside a commercial bus with the driver and conductor, when the policewoman hit the vehicle and that was all.
“I regret my action. I appeal to the Federal Government and the Police to free me. They should temper justice with mercy. I will never try this again. My wife walked out of the marriage six months ago, abandoning our baby”, he said.
Spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, said Ayeni would be charged to court for assault.
