  • Video: Nigerian Police Officers Fight Dirty In Public Over Bribe, IGP Orders Arrest
  • The Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the arrest of two policemen caught on video fighting each other in Edo State.

    In the 1:36 minute long video shared on Twitter by @parodyspokesman, the two policemen are exchanging blows and throwing themselves to the floor over bribe in Edo State.

    According to reports, the fight was caused by a little disagreement between the officers over who has the right to collect bribe from okada riders.

    In the video, some people who gathered around the scene tried to stop the officers from throwing punches at themselves all to no avail.

    A tweet by the verified Twitter handle of the Nigeria Police, @PoliceNG, on Thursday evening, identified the two cops as Corporal Ozimende Aidonojie (F/NO.491112) and Constable Salubi Stephen (F/NO.516384).

    The message by the Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, DCP Frank Mba revealed that the policemen are currently in detention and facing disciplinary action.

    It reads: “ The two policemen, F/NO 41112 CPL Ozimende Aidonojie and F/NO 516384 PC Salubi Stephen in this viral video have been identified, arrested and detained. They are currently undergoing internal disciplinary sanctions at the Edo State Police Command Headquarters.

    “The Force wishes to apprise the general public that this show of shame is certainly not in our character and we will not condone such indiscipline.

    “In the best tradition of transparency and accountability, the outcome of the trial will be made public. This, we believe, will also serve as deterrent to other police officers.”
