It was learned that their arrest was due to a petition written against them by the wife of a police officer who alleged that she was beaten by Sunday during an altercation between them in April.

However, one of the videos obtained by SaharaReporters shows some alleged thugs reportedly brought by the woman – the complainant – assaulting Emmanuel.

The hoodlums also allegedly stole Emmanuel’s Samsung phone which he reportedly bought for N75,000.

A source privy to the incident told SaharaReporters that the complainant is the wife of a policeman attached to the Elere police division in Lagos State.
