IGP orders investigation into viral video of police officer slapping a passenger along an express road in Kogi state

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered the Commissioner of Police, Kogi State Command to immediately carry out discrete investigations into the incident depicted in a trending video.

 

 

The video shows the moment a police officer slapped a passenger traveling in a commercial bus.

According to the man who filmed the incident and shared it online, a group of police officers stopped the commercial bus to carry out a search. During their search, they found a laptop on a man who said he was a student and used the laptop for his assignments. The man claimed the officers did not believe the student and demanded N25, 000 bribe.

The man claimed the officers took the student to a point-of-sale operator where they made the student withdraw N25, 000 and handed it over to them as they did not want it transferred to any of their accounts for easy detection. The man claimed that when one of the passengers frowned at the officer for corking his gun, the officer got angry and slapped the man and threatened that if he corked his gun, nothing will happen. The man claimed the police officer threatened that blood will flow if they do not caution themselves.

In a statement released, the spokesperson of the Nigerian police, Frank Mba, said the police chief has ordered an investigation into the matter.

”The IGP calls for calm, noting that at the end of the investigations, justice will be done to the victim of the incident and police personnel found guilty, brought to book.”the statement in part read
