The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Lawan Jimeta, has ordered the arrest and detention of two policemen who brought huge disrepute to the Force by engaging in a bitter and brutal public fight that went viral on social media.
The Force Headquarters’ Public Relations Officer, Mr Frank Mba, confirmed this in a statement on Friday, saying the two policemen in the viral video have been identified, arrested, and detained.
Mba said, “They are currently undergoing internal disciplinary sanctions at the Edo State Police Command Headquarters.
“The Force wishes to apprise the general public that this show of shame is certainly not in our character and we will not condone such indiscipline.
“In the best tradition of transparency and accountability, the outcome of the trial will be made public. This, we believe, will also serve as a deterrent to other police officers.”
