Four policemen arrested for assaulting civilian
Police in Enugu State have commenced investigation into an alleged misconduct by four policemen which was shown in a video clip in Enugu metropolis.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Ebere Amaraizu, said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Enugu yesterday.
Amaraizu said that the suspected unprofessional misconduct took place around Kenyatta Uwani axis on Saturday.
He said: “The command wishes to inform members of the public that its attention has been drawn to a video clip in relation to the unprofessional conduct of some police personnel in the assault of one Justice Obasi.
“The command further wishes to inform members of the public that the command views such act by its personnel as reflected in the said video as unprofessional; while it frowns at such act.
“To this end, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ahmed Abdurrahman, has directed for a full scale investigation into the unfortunate incident with a view to bringing the perpetrators to book.’’
The PPRO, however, noted that the erring police personnel had been identified and arrested already.
