The Imo state police command has confirmed that it has commenced the orderly room trial of six of its officers who were spotted in a viral video, assaulting two suspects with a machete.
Last week, a video showing the suspects being assaulted by the officers surfaced online. The video was condemned by many Nigerians including the police command who in a statement signed by its spokesperson, SP Henry Okoye, said officers are a detachment of one of the command's tactical teams and have been defaulted for ‘’Discreditable/Unprofessional Conduct, Improper Dressing, Incivility to and Assaulting the duo suspects.’’
