Weeks after two Police officers were caught on camera flogging a woman in Iwo, the Osun state police command have confirmed their dismissal from the service of the Nigerian Police Force.
The erring police officers are Inspector Ikuesan Taiwo with AP NO 251724 and PC Abass Ibrahim with Force No. 509634.
The victim, Tola Azeez, stepped out of her house during the lockdown to reportedly buy some drugs for a sick person when she was accosted by the officers who flooged her with a cane and only stopped after their colleagues intervened.
The Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed called for a full investigation after seeing the video. The investigations have been concluded and the police officers have been dismissed. They would be arraigned in court soon.
