Meanwhile, the Osun State Government has condemned the action of the officers, saying they went overboard in the discharge of their duties.

In a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, said: “This is a democracy, and Osun state is a decent society where men in or out of uniform should not and cannot whimsically flog women even men. We note that police authorities have condemned the unwarranted actions of these men. The State Government likewise condemns the unacceptable conduct of these policemen.”
