Imo CP orders arrest of officers for allegedly assaulting nursing mother

Mr. Danjuma Aboki, the Imo State Police Commissioner, on Thursday ordered the arrest, detention and investigation of officers who allegedly assaulted a nursing mother, identified as Ogechi Eze.






According to Henry Okoye, the Imo State Police spokesperson, who spoke to newsmen in Owerri, the cops would be sanctioned if found culpable because the CP has bowed that the Command under his watch will never condone any form of unprofessionalism.







“The Imo State Police Command is not unaware of a video making the rounds on social media, in which a nursing mother who identified herself as Mrs. Ogechi Eze, alleged that she and her children were assaulted by operatives of the Command’s Anti kidnapping unit, (Tiger Base) as their operational call-sign and is currently carrying out a comprehensive investigation to ascertain the remote facts of the case,” Okoye said.

“The Command, therefore, encourages Mrs Ogechi to report at the Police Public Relations Department, Command Headquarters, Owerri, to assist in identifying the officers in the ongoing investigation.
