The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered the detention and trial of PC Okoi Liyomo, a policeman caught on viral video flogging a man with cutlass in Ekori, Cross River State.


In a tweet, the force spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, said Liyomo met the IGP in Abuja on Thursday and will face trial over the incident.


Adejobi  wrote: “PC Okoi Liyomo, the policeman who was caught in the viral video flogging one man with a cutlass in Cross Rivers State has been brought to the Force Headquarters Abuja. He met with the IGP today. The IGP has ordered for his trial. I await the outcome of the trial.

“We will update you asap. We still reiterate our commitment to sanitising the NPF, no room for nonsense, as we will not condone any act of lawlessness, unprofessionalism, corruption, harassment and incivility.”


On the suspect’s deformity, Adejobi said a deformed policeman ought not to be in the Nigeria Police.


He wrote:

“If someone is deformed, he must nt be in d NPF. But for whatever d situation is, we are on with his orderly room trial and we don’t want to preempt what d outcome will be. But he will be awarded punishment asap. Ire oo..”
