The latest video of a Nigerian Police officer brutalizing a citizen will not do the already fragile image of the police force any good, especially in light of the assistant commissioner of police – Yomi Shogunle tweeting just a few days ago that Nigerians should be thankful their police force is nothing like police in China who slammed a mother and child to the ground.
We will never ever do this to a mom and/or child in Nigeria!
Once again, Naija people I say thank God for you own police. https://t.co/JIWh1hr5py

He then added,

Luckily it is being reported the unidentified man did not die. No word on if the officer received disciplinary action from his superiors.
The man who recorded the video and confronted the officers was brave. Shout out to him.
