Outrage As Video Shows Police Officers Running Over Handcuffed Man In Edo
Outrage has trailed a video of some officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) running over a handcuffed man with a Sienna vehicle.
The incident occurred on Thursday in Ekpoma, Edo state.
In a now-viral clip seen by newsmen, a handcuffed man was lying on the floor as a car laden with police officers repeatedly ran over him.
It was learned that the man was handcuffed by some police officers attached to the Ekpoma division over his refusal to allow them go through his mobile phones.
The victim was left with several bruises on his body afterwards.
According to report, the man is currently in the hospital receiving treatment.
Many Nigerians have condemned the police officers over the incident, while calling for their arrest.
Reacting to the incident in a tweet, Muyiwa Adejobi, force spokesperson, said the action of the police officers is “unpolice”, adding that the commissioner of police in Edo has been contacted.
When newsmen reached out to Chidi Nwabuzor, Edo police spokesperson, on Friday, he said the command will do “something” about the incident and that a statement will be issued soon.
