Policemen in viral video assaulting man arrested, to be taken to Abuja Tuesday



The Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, has revealed that policemen caught assaulting an innocent man in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, have been arrested.

A viral video surfaced on Monday where a policeman stopped an innocent man on the road and began to assault him. He gave him series of slaps and led him into a waiting vehicle to be taken away.

The video elicited sharp criticism on social media, making the police command to act promptly.

However, in series of tweets late Monday night, said the policemen in connection with the assault had been arrested and would be brought to Abuja on Tuesday.

‘These men have been arrested, and their commander will personally bring them to the Force Headquarters tomorrow Tuesday 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.

“You will see the evidence tomorrow. They will be at the Force Headquarters, and our actions will be made public. No worries. I don’t think any exposed, disciplined, and polished officer will cover this,” he said.

According to him, “We are mindful of the fact that every human being needs mental evaluation on a regular basis. The NP Health Management Office has been up and doing in addressing these metal related issues, and this is achievable.

“There is no place in our law, or act or training manual or curriculum where slapping or flogging is listed as a measure of arrest or applying minimum force (as stipulated by law), no.”
