Policemen In Edo Summoned By IG, See Why

Acting Inspector General of Police Olukayode Egbedokun has summoned police officers who were detained after running over a man wearing handcuffs to the Force Headquarters.

In Ekpoma, Edo State, a group of police officers in their official vehicle drove over and dragged down the road a middle-aged guy who was shackled.

According to reports, the incident raised tensions in the neighborhood.

The wrongdoing officers are, however, scheduled to report to Force Headquarters on Monday, according to a statement by Force spokesperson Muyiwa Adejobi.

The statement read, “The acting IGP has condemned the disturbing incident where a police team ran a vehicle over a citizen on Thursday, June 29, 2023, at Ekpoma, Edo State.

“The IGP has, therefore, directed the erring policemen, who have been in detention in Edo State, to report to the Force Headquarters Abuja on Monday for further action.’”

He urged residents to be calm, assuring them that the Force would not tolerate unprofessional conduct from its men.

“Members of the public, particularly the people of Ekpoma, are implored to remain calm as the present leadership of the NPF will not condone such an act of unprofessionalism and illegality,” he said.
