Linda Ikeji reports — trouble started when a checkpoint staff at the airport attempted to verify some of the checked luggage with the attached tags, but, rather than allow the staff to carry out his official duty, 22 year old Umarudeen Kayode pictured left, insisted that he would not allow him to verify the luggage, which after much argument and insistence, led to fisticuffs.

Umarudeen allegedly punched the Checkpoint staff on the face, which attracted other security officials at the terminal who immediately attempted to arrest him. Rather than obey, he resisted arrest and pummeled another airport security staff attached to the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria at the baggage claim area, an Assistant Customs Comptroller was also injured.

Umarudeen was arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate court on a 5-count charge yesterday January 12th. He was charged for assault, breach of public peace and for resisting arrest. The first charge accused him of obstructing and resisting a public officer, an offense contrary to section 117(1) and punishable under the same section of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.

“That you, Umarudeen Kayode ‘M’, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district did unlawfully assault a public officer causing him harm and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011” reads count 2.

The magistrate granted him bail in the sum of N50, 000 and two sureties in like sum. The sureties must have variable addresses within the jurisdiction of the court. According to Sahara Reporters, Umarudeen was not able to meet the bail condition as at the time the court closed for the day. This suggests that Umarudeen will be sleeping in the prison this weekend until he perfects his bail conditions.

How it all started..

On January 11, 2018 upon arrival from Dubai on an Emirates flight, one of Davido’s goons, Kayode Umarudeen assaulted check-port security at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport arrival for doing their job.

Meanwhile a video uploaded on January 21,2017 shows Nigerian officers abetting Davido and his entourage in a reckless conduct.

A video uploaded by SaharaReporters, shows Umarudeen being conveyed with the prison van out of the court premises a few minutes after 4 pm.
