ABUJA – The Nigerian Police authority has condemned in it’s totality the disturbing act of assault, allegedly committed by some members of the Nigerian Police, on a Nigerian in Port Harcourt.
According to CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, the Force PPRO, “I wonder how a man, a reasonable man, would be flogging or slapping a grown-up man in that manner. So barbaric and unpolice.”
It would be recalled that in a video that went viral on Monday, April 10, 2023, three policemen were seem involved in slapping and beating an unidentified man in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
While giving an update on the issue, Monday evening, the PPRO, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi said: “These men have been arrested, and their Commander will personally bring them to the Force Headquarters tomorrow Tuesday (April 11, 2023) for further actions.
“They are 3 in number, attached to RRS, Rivers State. Their action does not portray the police in a good light at all.
“It is still to buttress my point that whatever a policeman does is personal, not systemic.
“I wonder how a man, a reasonable man, would be flogging or slapping a grown-up man in that manner. So barbaric and unpolice.”
It was scooped that the incident happened at Elibrade Junction, Emohua Local Government Area of Port Harcourt on Monday, April 10, 2023.
