“waka dey go, I say waka dey go” while the man he was assaulting asks “Why you
dey flog me, I thief”

Reacting to the viral video, the spokesperson of the Nigeria
Police Force, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said it is unethical for a police officer
to flog someone. He added that irrespective of the man’s actions, he did not
deserve to be beaten ‘’like a baby.”
‘’Quite unfortunate. I have asked the Rivers State Command
to fish them out. This is unpolice, unethical, and condemned. Whatever the man
must have done, he doesn’t deserve this beating. Beating him like a baby?? A
grown-up man?. We will surely get the men.”
