The Police Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has said no Nigerian has the right to confront policemen or retaliate, even if the cop slapped a ‘civilian’.
Speaking through his Twitter account, the Force PRO advised any such victim of Police brutality to rather file a complaint with the law enforcement agency.
He said: “Even if a policeman in uniform slaps a civilian, the civilian has no right to retaliate. More so, if he’s in the uniform, it’s an act of disrespect to Nigeria to beat an officer in the uniform.
“The disrespect is not to the policeman but to our nation and it’s a crime as enshrined in our criminal laws.
