Police Spokesperson Reacts As Officers Assault Man In Kwara

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Police Spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has reacted to a trending video of the security operatives assaulting a man in Kwara State.

Naija News reports that a man had called the attention of the Police Spokesperson to the video via X, alleging that the victim didn’t commit any crime.

According to the man, the Policemen accused the victim of being a ‘Yahoo Boy’ in an attempt to collect money from him.

He wrote: “As seen today in Ilorin. A young man walking by with his girlfriend, and your people parked and grabbed him labelling him a Yahoo boy just to collect, as usual from innocent young guys”

Reacting, Adejobi said he had ordered the Kwara State Police Command to fish out the perpetrators and send them to Abuja.

He wrote: “I have asked the Kwara comm to fish them out and bring them to Abuja. In most cases, we need to take charge of some peculiar cases like this, more so that the men involved are recalcitrant. I have spotted at least 2 offences in this video, and they need to explain to us. Thanks.”
