It was gathered that the incident happened at a checkpoint in Obeagu Awkunanaw, along Agbani Road, on September 8.

Reacting to the trending video, the Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu said the Command would not entertain such acts of “unprofessionalism by personnel under his watch”.

In a statement by the command’s spokesman, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, the Commissioner directed the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (State CIID) to begin an immediate investigation and disciplinary sanction of the officer involved in the assault.

A statement issued by the command warned officers against such behavior.

The CP also enjoined the witnesses and the victim to approach the State CID to drop their statement which would help in the investigation.

The statement reads in part, “The CP while condemning the conduct of the Policeman as shown in the video, has warned personnel of the Command against conducting themselves unprofessionally or disrespecting the fundamental human rights of citizens while performing their duties. He made it clear that anyone found wanting will be made to face maximum disciplinary sanctions.

“Also, residents of the State have been enjoined to promptly report Police Officers of the Command found conducting themselves in an unprofessional manner to the nearest Police Station or by calling the Command’s emergency hotlines on 08032003702, 08075390883, 08086671202 or 08098880172.
