A video showing Ayeni beating the female officer, went viral on Thursday August 13, prompting the state police command to immediately launch an investigation. Ayeni who is known to terrorize residents of the area under the guise that he is a military officer, was identified and arrested.

Preliminary investigations showed that Ayeni got offended by the female police officer for stopping a commercial bus he was commuting in.

According to Vanguard, Ayeni during interrogation, said he was disqualified at entry-level into the military. In his words


“I am a dismissed soldier. I was dismissed during training. I had spent four months in the training before I was dismissed ( disqualified ).

This was because anytime someone shouted at me, I would feel somehow. They said I had a medical problem and told me to leave.

I don’t know what came over me on Sunday. I was inside a commercial bus with the driver and conductor, when the policewoman hit the vehicle and that was all.

“I regret my action. I appeal to the Federal Government and the Police to free me. They should temper justice with mercy. I will never try this again. My wife walked out of the marriage six months ago, abandoning our baby“he said

 The spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, said Ayeni would be charged to court for assault.
