The Nigerian Police Force has confirmed that the three cops who were assaulting a man in Port Harcourt have been identified and arrested.

CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police public relations officer made this known on Twitter while reacting to a tweet of the assault.

A Twitter user had shared a clip which captured the moment the officers were assaulting the man who was said to be on his way to church on Easter day.

The tweep had written:

“A family man being assaulted in front of his wife by police, this is sad @policeNg.”

CSP Adejobi said:

“These men have been arrested, and their commander will personally bring to the Force Headquarters tomorrow Tuesday(today) for further actions. They are 3 in number, attached to RRS, Rivers State. Their action does not portray the police in a good light at all.

It is still to buttress my point that whatever a policeman does is personal, not systemic. I wonder how a man, a reasonable man, would be flogging or slapping a grown-up man in that manner. So barbaric and unpolice.”
