Two policemen in Osun State arrested for openly assaulting a woman

  Two policemen in Osun State have been arrested for openly assaulting a woman with whips at Odo Ori Market in the Iwo area of the state.

  In the video of the incident that has since gone viral on the Internet, the two policemen could be seen repeatedly flogging the woman with whips and only halted their assault after the intervention of some of their colleagues minutes after. Angered by the situation following outrage by Nigerians, who had seen the video, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, ordered the arrest of the officers for disciplinary action.

  In a statement on Sunday, Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, said that investigation into the incident was ongoing with a view to sanctioning the policemen for their conduct.
