On the afternoon of Tuesday 10th November 2020, some bad elements of the Police Force that still need to be weeded out of the system were caught on camera physically assaulting a hapless and helpless passerby on Ologun Agbaje Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Recall that it was similar acts of malicious brutality that had led to the nationwide #EndSARS protests which had eventually been hijacked by hoodlums.
At this time when turbulent peace still exists between the police and the masses, and even the Government is being wary, it is therefore very disheartening to see the viral video where some ‘so far gone’ corrupt officers who seem unaffected by the new police reforms and the IG’s efforts to reinvent police image, are still treating hardworking Nigerians as primary school pupils that they can extort and whip at will.
Although, what transpired between both parties couldn’t be ascertained as at the time of filing this report, the inhuman treatment meted out to the victim is unwarranted under any circumstance as the man’s rights were violated.
If some evil Policemen still think they can still operate under the old status quo, they had better have a rethink as Nigerians are no longer ready to be brutalized and dehumanized by some unrepentant beasts in police uniforms.
The highest echelon of the Police Form had better tackle this re-emerging trend to forestall the gradual preparation for another violent showdown between the masses and their unrelenting tormentors.
