The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has arrested two Police Special Constabularies who were captured in a viral video demanding money from a Dutch woman rider.
The Police Special Constabularies committed the act in the Ojongbodu area along the Iseyin/Ogbomosho Road in Oyo State.
According to a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer(FPRO), Prince Muyiwa Adejobi, the Constabularies were arrested by the police authority due to their unprofessional, unacceptable, and punishable actions.
The Commissioner of Police for Oyo State Command, CP Adebola Ayinde Hamzat has swiftly initiated a disciplinary process in response to this incident.
Hamzat stated that such behavior is deemed inappropriate and contrary to the principles of policing, and it will not be tolerated in any manner.
“The police authority has condemned the act and ordered that the men and their supervising Divisional Police Officer be sanctioned accordingly.
“The Force would however intensify efforts in commencing the reorientation programme initiated by the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Ph.D, NPM, for officers and men of the Force to address issues of this nature and reposition the Nigeria Police Force. “
