A 47-year old man Chijioke Okeiyi has been docked by the police for allegedly fondling the breast of a police woman at a police station.
The incident happened at Isheri Oshun Division where Okeiyi was detained in the cell for fighting in the public with co-tenants.
He was charged for conduct likely to cause breach of public peace.
According to reports, the Inspector with the name, Adesina Adefoluke of the Isheri Osun Police Division was assaulted when she went to open the cell in order to rescue Okeiyi who was attacked by other suspects inside the cell. When Okeiyi came out, he found relief in Adefoluke’s breast as he allegedly grabbed it and in the process tore her uniform.
The arraignment turned into a mild drama today at the Ejigbo Magistrates court when the victim Adefolunke informed the court that Okeiyi was under stress in the police cell and she went to bring him out.
However, when she opened the key to the cell, Okeiyi came out and landed his hands on her breasts for undisclosed reasons and she had to raise alarm.
In his response, Okeiyi said that he was attacked in the cell and was almost unconscious before his hand landed on her breasts and her uniform got torn. His explanation did not stop the police from arraigning Okeiyi for the alleged offence.
He pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mr L.K.J Layeni granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.
He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail condition.
