Two teenagers, Abubakar Bello and Sikiru Bello, the two sons of a Superintendent of Police (SP), were yesterday arraigned at the Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos State for beating up two senior policemen with a belt.

Abubakar and Sikiru were said to have attacked a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Onojaife Kent, and a Superintendent of Police (SP), Nwaimo Christopher, with a belt. According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the two boys, 16 and 19, are standing trial alongside a 33-yearold woman, Risikat Arowolo, on a two-count charge of conspiracy and assault. The police prosecutor, Sergeant Peace Chukwudi, told the court that the accused committed the offences on February 10 at Macarthy Police Barracks on Lagos Island.
