Upon the report, the Area Commander Ota, ACP Muhideen Obe, detailed his family support unit to the scene where the randy prophet was promptly arrested.
The Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered a thorough investigation of the case and that the suspect be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
