The Nigerian Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered a discreet investigation into the degrading treatment meted out to a female varsity graduate in a viral video by some police officers.
This decision by the police boss is in a swift reaction to public uproar over the dehumanizing sexual harassment of the officers to the lady who was caught alongside a wanted notorious criminal. The Police IGP, who was quick to condemn the act, immediately directed the commencement of a comprehensive investigation aimed at unraveling the true identity of the perpetrators, and with a view to bring them to justice.
Speaking via the Nigeria Police Force Twitter handle, the IGP assured members of the public that the any officer found culpable in the incident will be made to face appropriate actions.
In the video in question, a female Nigerian Youth Corper, arrested alongside a male suspected criminal, is being interrogated by the officers, who not only hit her in the process, but also threw some degrading questions at her.
Since the viral video broke the media space on Wednesday 22, 2020, many Nigerians have expressed total annoyance to the unprofessional conduct of the police officers.
