IGP Orders Arrest Of Policeman Caught On Camera Slapping, Flogging Motorist With Cane In Rivers State
Following a video circulating on the internet showing a policeman brutally assaulting a man in the middle of a road, the Inspector General of Police,Usman Alkali Baba has directed the Commissioner of Police in Rivers State to fish out the officers concerned.
In the video that has gone viral, an officer could be seen flogging the man with a cane, while his colleague faced the man’s female companion .
The incident was said to have happened on Sunday at Emouha junction, East/West Road in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
The officer and his colleagues were not in approved uniforms but were armed.
In the video, one of the officers was seen assaulting the man with a stick before slapping him repeatedly.
He was subsequently forced to enter a vehicle.
Also, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has reacted to the video of a police officer flogging a man in Port Harcourt.
Adejobi said it is unethical for a police officer to flog someone. He added that irrespective of what the man must have done, he did not deserve to be beaten ‘’like a baby.”
‘’Quite unfortunate. I have asked the Rivers State Command to fish them out. This is unpolice, unethical, and condemned. Whatever the man must have done, he doesn’t deserve this beating. Beating him like a baby?? A grown-up man?. We will surely get the men.”
