Lagos CP Visits Okada Man Brutalised By Police Officers In Viral Video

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, on Thursday, visited the okada rider, who was assaulted by some police officers in a viral video.

Three policemen were seen in a viral video brutalising the Okada man in the Abule Egba Area of the state.

One of the policemen was seen hitting his baton on the man as another one was pushing him away. The man, who tried to wrestle his bike with the policemen, sustained injury as he held on to his forehead where blood was seen gushing out from.

The third policeman rode away on the victim’s bike while the two others immediately left the scene in a tricycle.

According to the State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, in a series of tweets via his Twitter account, said that Owohunwa condemned the policemen’s actions and told the public that disciplinary action had already been taken against the men.

He said, “CP Idowu Owohunwa today visited the young man involved in this incident and members/leadership of Hausa community in Abattoir Market, Agege.

“The CP, who condemned the excessive use of force by the policemen in enforcing the existing ban on use of motorcycles in certain parts of Lagos State, has assured members of the public that the disciplinary measures already initiated against the men would be brought to a logical conclusion and the outcome made public.

“The Command will continue to ensure that the rule of law is upheld, while not relenting in enforcing the laws of the land.”
