A statement on Monday by DSP Bright Edafe noted that the personnel acted in an unprofessional manner unbecoming of police officers.
The security agency said no one deserves to be treated in such a manner, assuring the public of its zero tolerance for victimisation of citizens.
Edafe called the officers’ conduct “inexcusable and unpardonable”, adding that rope is not a police accoutrement and should not be used by in whatever guise.
The PRO confirmed the erring officers, attached to Agbarho Division, have been identified and detained at the command headquarters.
Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Ali has directed that internal disciplinary action be initiated immediately, assurng the outcome of an orderly room trial will be made public.
The statement advised the public to report complaints or distress situation via 09155570008, 09155570007 and 08036684974.
