“Meanwhile, all four have been remanded at Kirikiri maximum correctional facility.”
Hundeyin had earlier shared a video of the quartet engaging the officers in a heated confrontation at an undisclosed area in Lagos.
At the time, it was not clear what led to the fight.
But Hundeyin had said the police will prosecute anyone — including the officers — found culpable.
“The police officers too are undergoing questioning. Investigation is ongoing. One thing remains sure: everyone, police inclusive, found culpable will face the law!” he had written.
