An Ado Ekiti Chief Magistrate’s Court has remanded a 33-year-old dry cleaner, Imole Emmanuel, in prison custody for assaulting a police corporal, Kayode Akingbade, and conducting himself in a manner likely to cause breach of public peace.
Emmanuel, who was slammed with a three-count charge on June 13 at about 5.30 pm, is accused of pouring hot soup on Akingbade’s face and police uniform and also attempted to snatch his service rifle.
Policemen were said to be on surveillance around Baptist College area on Ilawe Road and the suspect was ordered to leave their area to allow the cops carry out their operation.
Akingbade was said to have dashed to the canteen to eat about 30 minutes later only for the suspect to trace him there and allegedly carried out the attack.
