Shame! Ogun Federal Lawmaker, Tunji Akinosi Goes Berserk, Assaults Police Officer (VIDEO)

The police officer whose identity was unknown told the federal lawmaker and other guests on the pathway to the reserved seat for the Deputy to leave the road at the 2023 Iganmode Day Celebration held at Sango-Ota, in Ado-Odo/Ota local government area of Ogun state.

This instruction from the Police officer may have angered the lawmaker and he reportedly descended on the armed officer with a rain of blows before the officer was rescued away from him.

Hon. Akinosi similarly on May 1, 2023 in Lagos state assaulted a hapless lady for putting a dent on his SUV vehicle, which generated lots of controversy.

Recall that, the Lagos State Police Command arraigned Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti for assaulting a police officer on the Lagos Highway.

Seun Kuti was charged with assault on a police officer, an offense contrary to Section 356 of the Nigerian Criminal Code Act.

However, onlookers who witnessed the show of shame have urged the federal lawmaker to work on his temperament and anger management.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Ogun Police command, SP Omolola Odutola told our reporter that she saw the video online, saying the police command would investigate further.

She said, “I only saw the video as you saw it, but I will try to investigate further.”

Meanwhile, the Force Police Public Relations Officer (FPPRO), ACP Muyiwa Adejobi was yet to react to the viral video as at the time of filing this report.
