In a swift reaction, the IGP directed Ali to forward the necessary details of the accused officer to the force secre­tary, Abuja, for further disciplinary actions.

Onwu had descended on the female traffic warden, Inspector Anifat Bello, at her duty post at the NNPC Junction on IBB Boulevard way, Abeokuta, the state capital, and beat her to a pulp for daring to stop his vehicle while controlling the traffic.
