The incident happened at about 8:am at the Oluyole Estate axis of Ibadan, Southwest Local Government Area, while the officer was on active and legitimate duty in the area.

According to eyewitnesses, Mrs. Aramide was driving on ‘one-way’ and against traffic when the officer stopped her vehicle.

In this process, she allegedly slapped the officer repeatedly and other motorists, passersby, commercial motorcyclist and eyewitnesses who were apparently angry and displeased at her actions gathered in an attempt to mob her and raze the vehicle involved.
