Information reaching us showed that Tobi’s father and mother were fighting and that instead of separating them, he joined his mother to beat up his father.
His father, Mr. Victor Majoyegbe, then went to the police station for his son’s arrest, but that when the policemen went to the house, Tobi and his friend, Taiwo, resisted arrest and beat up the officers.
