Police Arrest Officer Caught On Tape Assaulting Man In Rivers State

The police officer seen in a viral video assaulting an unidentified man in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, has been arrested alongside his two colleagues.

This was made known by the Nigeria Police Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, who gave update on the issue.

Muyiwa in a post on his social media handle yesterday said that the officers involved in the act have been arrested and they will be transferred to the force headquarters today.

“These men have been arrested, and their commander will personally bring to the Force Headquarters tomorrow Tuesday(today) 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.”

Over the weekend, the video showing one of the police officers flogging the man along the Port Harcourt East-West Road, Emouha Junction, went viral.
