CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, has condemned a viral video of a police officer assaulting a man in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.
In the video, an officer could be seen flogging the man with a cane, while his colleague faced the man’s female companion .
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.”
