3 Corrupt Policemen Arrested For Attacking Man Who Refused To Unlock Phone In Enugu

After the directive of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, three policemen who were caught on video assaulting a young man in Enugu State have been arrested.

In the video, which was shared by a Twitter handle @onyezeme on Saturday, the young man identified as Justice Obasi was seen being manhandled by three armed police officers.

According to @onyezeme, the young man was being manhandled for refusing to unlock his phone.

“They labelled the boy a fraudster (yahoo boy) without any evidence,” the handle read.

This sparked outrage and the police reacted on Sunday morning, saying the IGP had ordered investigation into uncovering the identities of the policemen.

Speaking through the verified Twitter handle of the Nigeria Police Force @policeNG, they promised to bring the erring policemen to book as the IGP condemned all forms of brutality and abuse of human rights.

“The Force PRO is already personally in touch with the victim. The public are implored to be calm as the Force remains committed to protecting and upholding the rights of all Nigerians,” the police Twitter handle read.

    THESE, TOGETHER WITH 95% OTHERS, ARE what constitute the Nigeria Police personnel. They did not become Police officers out of passion, but fraustration. Good a thing that they were arrested, i.e., if the arrest story is anything to go buy. We know how the police and army could lie.

    Not just addressing ONLY this case, but there should be an enactment of law by National Assembly, to tackle this ugly and age long menace once and for all, this will go a long way to serve as strong deterrence to any other uniform personnel with such devilish inclination!

    This is a welcome development as it is a big relief to Nigerians. There is need for the force public relations department to constantly educate the citizens on their rights and how to report such abused. There are decent and responsible men and women in the Nigerian Police but there are a handful who just behave like ordinary touts who should not be there in the first place. Bravo to the IGP and his patriotic team
