UPDATE: 3 officers in viral video assaulting unidentified man arrested, to be moved to Force headquarters on Tuesday

The police in Rivers state have arrested three officers seen in a viral video assaulting an unidentified man in Port Harcourt.

According to The Nation, the incident took place at Port Harcourt East West Road, Emouha junction.

Rivers commissioner of police, Okon Effiong, had earlier ordered arrest of the policemen

The Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi also condemned the action of the officers.

Giving an update Monday evening, Adejobi said: “These men have been arrested, and their commander will personally bring them to the Force Headquarters tomorrow Tuesday for further actions.

“They are three in number, attached to RRS, Rivers State. Their action does not portray the police in a good light at all.

“It is still to buttress my point that whatever a policeman does is personal, not systemic.

“I wonder how a man, a reasonable man, would be flogging or slapping a grown-up man in that manner. So barbaric and unpolice.”
