The Ogun State Police Command has arrested the All Progressives Congress chief, Mr. Bayo Awosanya, who allegedly assaulted his wife Victoria, at their Sagamu residence on Easter Sunday.

He was said to have allegedly hit Victoria’s head against a window glass, in addition to pulling off her weave from her hair. As a result, Victoria was reportedly hospitalised for four days at a hospital in the Sabo area of Sagamu.

Bayo, who had gone into hiding since the incident, was reportedly absent at the state’s APC congress which held last Saturday in Abeokuta.

Following this development, Women Arise, a non-governmental organisation, had in PUNCH Metro on Monday, called for Bayo’s arrest in a petition to the Inspector General of Police.

However, a statement by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, said Bayo was arrested on Monday after he personally reported himself to the Sagamu Police Division.

Adejobi said,, “At about 8am, due to the threats issued and pressure mounted on Bayo to show up  before he would be declared wanted by the police, he reported himself to the Sagamu Police Division on Monday.

“Bayo confessed to the offence of wounding levelled against him and has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for necessary investigation. He will be charged to court immediately we conclude our investigation.

“The Commissioner of Police Ogun State, Mr. Ikemefuna Okoye, has assured the general public, particularly interested NGOs, and Civil Society Organisations of its readiness to support their fight against crime in order to have a better society.”
