The police in Ogun State Police have arrested one Osas Onyeokwenu and his wife, Tomisin Onyeokwenu, for allegedly assaulting a 20-year-old ex-girlfriend of the man.
It was learnt that the couple had lured the victim into an uncompleted building, where the wife, Tomisin, used a pair of scissors to tear the victim’s clothes, leaving her naked.
