It was expected that these policemen would’ve been called up by the disciplinary committee of the Nigerian police force, 4 days after the video of the incident went viral, but Nigerians are obviously running out, as both the Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, and NPF Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, are both to respond to the video.
While some argued that the bikeman is wrong by applying a no-motorcycle route, they also condemned the unprofessionalism of the men of the Nigerian police force who used brutal means to arrest the motorcycle and then leaving the motorcyclist with blunt head injury, and his head covered with blood.
