Former Golden Eaglets coach, Fanny Amun, has been arrested by policemen from Bode Thomas, Surulere, Lagos State for assault. Amun was said to have attacked a man identified as Okechukwu while he was walking along the street in Surulere.
According to eyewitnesses, Amun attacked the man because he had the impression that his wife was dating and sleeping with Okechukwu. Okechukwu later went to Bode Thomas Police Station to report.
Amun was subsequently arrested.
His wife was also invited and bore witness against him, insisting that she was at the scene when Amun assaulted Okechukwu.
She further explained to policemen that she and Amun had separated since 1991, after which Amun married another woman and has had four children and lived at Maryland with his new family. The wife said that she believed that Amun had moved on, so also had she.
She however said that she did not know why Amun was suddenly interested in her affairs after years apart.
Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, who confirmed the incident, said that Amun assaulted Okechukwu on the street and tore his clothes.
Braide said that Okechukwu claimed that in the process of the attack, he was dispossessed of his N40, 000 and a wrist watch.
It was however gathered that Amun was later released.
