A police officer has been reportedly beaten by a woman over missing N150,000 in Osun.

A woman identified as Florence Samuel has been dragged to an Osun State Magistrates’ Court sitting in Osogbo after being accused of allegedly assaulting a police sergeant, Caroline Olaitan.

According to Punch, Florence, a 28-year-old palm wine seller at a shop located in the Balogun Agoro area of Osogbo, allegedly beat up the policewoman and resisted arrest when Caroline visited her pub following allegation that the sum of N150,000 belonging to a patron was missing.
