Usman Alkali Baba, the IGP, has mandated that Police Corporal Okoi Liyomo be put on trial after he was found in Cross River State thrashing a man with a cutlass.
Remember that earlier in the week, a trending social media post showed a police officer flog a person with the side of a cutlass. This caught the attention of the Nigerian Police Force hierarchy.
Liyomo met with the IGP in Abuja on Thursday, and according to Force Public Relations Officer CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, he will stand prosecution for the incident.
The tweet said, “PC Okoi Liyomo, the policeman who was caught in the viral video flogging one man with a cutlass in Cross Rivers State has been brought to the Force Headquarters Abuja.
“He met with the IGP today. The IGP has ordered for his trial. I await the outcome of the trial.
“We will update you asap. We still reiterate our commitment to sanitising the NPF, no room for nonsense, as we will not condone any act of lawlessness, unprofessionalism, corruption, harassment and incivility.”
