AIG to prosecute brutal police officers in Edo

AIG to prosecute brutal police officers in Edo

Police officers who chained two suspects to a moving van in Benin City, Edo State, will be pros­ecuted, the Assistant Inspec­tor-General of Police for Zone 5, Mr Adamu Abubakar, has said.
In a statement signed by the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Emeka Iheana­cho, the AIG said an inves­tigation had been launched into the alleged assault by the Zonal Criminal Investigation and Intelligent Department.
Adamu described the con­duct of the policemen as un­professional saying they would be sanctioned as soon as the investigation is concluded. He added that the act doesn’t de­pict the ethics and core values of the police as it violates the principle of democratic polic­ing.
He, however, assured mem­bers of the public that appro­priate punishment will be meted out on the culprits, noting that the victims one Odozi Kester and Austin Og­bomwan are in good health and helping the police in the investigation.
“We urge members of the public to continue to support the Nigeria Police force in its onerous task of providing a sustainable peace and secu­rity in our dear country,” he said.
