The officer who assaulted actress and comedienne MaryGrace Chioma Ogbu, better known as Ekwutousi Philo, has been arrested by the Police.
In a video posted on her Instagram page, the Skitmaker courageously documented her confrontation with the police officer. He was caught sitting in her car, made a brazen attempt to wrestle the recording phone from her grip, sparking a fierce tug-of-war, all while her dismay-filled screams pierced the air.
In her account of the ordeal, the content creator revealed that she fell victim to a distressing incident on October 20, 2023, along the Alapere highway in Lagos around 5 o’clock in the morning.
The Skitmaker recounted that, following a prolonged exchange, she reluctantly agreed to follow the officers to their station. She even allowed one of them to occupy the front seat of her car, with other officers tailing them in their own vehicles.
Ekwutousi Philo stated that during the journey to the station, she made the decision to go live on Instagram as a safety precaution. However, the police officer blatantly obstructed her, resorting to physical force and striking her in the process.
She later revealed that the officer’s phone dropped on the floor of her car and they couldn’t locate it till they left. She was then able to get his family member’s contacts and subsequently secured his arrest.
