According to information obtained from Vanguard, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force's Public Relations Officer has requested an investigation into the viral video, which is now circulating online, showing police officers punching a young man who refused to give them his phone.
It's interesting to note that on Wednesday, a Twitter user tweeted a video of police beating a man and mentioned the Nigerian Police Force and Benjamin Hundeyin, the public relations officer for the Lagos State Police, in his tweets.
Part of his tweet reads, "No drugs nothing, no evidence. Why would you ask for a phone, I don't know why? #PoliceNG #BenHundeyin, I'm not sure why. Ben, fish out these policemen for investigation."
The force spokesperson remarked in response to the footage, "Investigating this is necessary. And the victim should send an sms to me personally as I need some information from him or them. I am interested in this disgusting drama/scene. Thanks."
