Lagos CP visits okada man brutalised by police officers

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, on Thursday, visited the motorcycle rider assaulted by some officers.

A viral video showed the security personnel beating the okada man near the bridge at the Abule Egba area of Lagos.

One repeatedly hit the victim with his baton while another pushed him away as he tried to prevent them from seizing his bike.

The citizen sustained an injury to his forehead where blood gushed out from but the officers ignored him.

The third policeman eventually rode away on the motorcycle while the two others left the scene in a tricycle (keke).

During his visit, CP Owohunwa condemned the incident and informed the public that disciplinary actions had been taken.
