Gross Misconduct By Edo Policemen: IGP Orders The Officers To Report To Force HQ.

By Mohammed Bello Doka
The Nigerian Police force has vowed to punish the Edo state police officers seen in a viral video molesting a driver who was handcuffed, and the policemen ran their vehicle on him. 

The police authorities in a post shared on their verified social media handles said the action was inhuman, barbaric and against the ethics of professionalism, thus unacceptable. 

The statement also said the Inspector General of Police has ordered the said officers who have been in detention to report to the Force Headquarters on Monday for further investigation and disciplinary action. 

The statement reads

“The Ag. Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Adeolu Egbetokun, PhD, NPM, has condemned the disturbing incident where a police team ran a vehicle over a citizen on Thursday, June 29, 2023, at Ekpoma, Edo State." 

"The IGP has, therefore, directed the erring policemen, who have been in detention in Edo State, to report to the Force Headquarters in Abuja on Monday for further action. Members of the public, particularly the people of Ekpoma, are implored to remain calm as the present leadership of the NPF will not condone such an act of unprofessionalism and illegality."
