Yesterday was a sad day for Tola Azeez, as she was heartlessly brutalized by policemen in Osun State.

Nigerian rapper cum activist earlier shared a clip of the incident, putting in display the mind-churning incident.

As expected, it quickly went viral and has attracted widespread criticism from several Nigerian activists and indeed the IGP.

The mother of two who identified in the comment section of the video disclosed that she was out to ‘get drugs and relieve materials’. Furthermore, she added that she’s currently in pain consequent of the merciless brutality.

The policemen have a track record for barbarity

The officers who perpetrated the attack are Inspector Ikuesan Taiwo and PC Abass Ibrahim. Residents of Iwo who took to the comment section revealed that they are renown for barbarity.

What makes the video even more shocking is the fact that the officer hurried towards her and started flogging right after. It is a clear indication of his penchant for notoriety.

Police headquarters has confirmed their arrest

The Nigeria Police headquarters released a statement in which he strongly condemed the attack on the woman.

‘The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, NPM, mni condemns this unwarranted, unnecessary and unjustifiable assault on this innocent citizen (as shown in the attached viral video), at the Odo Ori Market, Iwo Osun State by men of the Force attached to Iwo Division, Osun,’ the statement read.

‘Following the IGP’s condemnation and directives that the Commissioner of Police immediately arrest and bring the officers to book, CP Johnson Kokumo mni, the Commissioner of Police in charge of Osun State Command where the incident occurred, has arrested the officers involved in the unfortunate incident.

‘They are Inspector Ikuesan Taiwo with AP NO 251724 and PC Abass Ibrahim with Force No. 509634.

‘The duo are currently being detained and their orderly room trial had since commenced.

‘The IGP reiterates that the Police under his watch will not condone any act of misconduct and recklessness on the part of its personnel,’ the statement added.

The COVID-19 lockdown has seen a spike in cases of armed forces brutality. Just recently, a young man was shot dead in Delta by a soldier sent to enforce the lockdown.
