The Three female police officers were said to have been assaulted and stripped on Wednesday after honouring an invitation by a landlady in the area to arrest one of her tenants.
The police officers are currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
According to the Nation, things got heated up when the tenant insisted on taking her bath before going to the police station but the police officers said she should follow them.
Other residents in the area reportedly joined the tenant to beat and strip the officers.
The landlady who was identified as Mrs. Okebuse said she invited the police because she had given the tenants quit notice.
She said, “When the police came to make arrest, they started fighting the police. I ran for my life and hid in the other compound.”
An eyewitness said the landlady uses police to harass her tenants.
“The woman was taking her bath and the police officers refused to allow the woman to take her bath,” the eyewitness said.
The state’s Police Commissioner, Foluso Adebanjo, said the perpetrators of the attack would be dealt with according to the full extent of the law.
He said suspects arrested have since been charged to court.
