Imo CP Orders Arrest of Officer Accused of Assaulting Nursing Mother

The Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Aboki Danjuma, has instructed the immediate arrest and detention of a police officer accused of assaulting a nursing mother, Mrs. Ogechi Eze, and her children.

The woman made the accusation against the officer in a video that went viral on social media.

In a statement released by the spokesperson of the Imo State Police Command, Okoye Henry, it was disclosed that the command is investigating the incident to determine its facts and the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of the Command’s X-Squad and Provost has been tasked to ensure appropriate sanctions if the officers are found guilty.

The statement said, “The Imo State Police Command is not unaware of a video making the rounds on social media, in which a nursing mother who identified herself as Mrs. Ogechi Eze, alleged that she and her children were assaulted by operatives of the Command’s Anti kidnapping unit, (Tiger Base) as their operational call-sign and is currently carrying out a comprehensive investigation to ascertain the remote facts of the case.

“Accordingly, the Commissioner of Police Imo State Command, CP Aboki Danjuma, has ordered the immediate arrest and detention of the alleged officers and tasked the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of the Command’s X-Squad and Provost to ensure that the alleged officers are sanctioned in accordance with the Force’s extant laws if found culpable.

“The Command, therefore, encourages Mrs Ogechi to report at the Police Public Relations Department, Command Headquarters, Owerri, to assist in identifying the officers in the ongoing investigation.

“The Commissioner of Police Imo State Command reaffirms that the Command under his watch will never condone any form of unprofessionalism, arrest by proxy, assault, or incivility to members of the Public by its personnel and will not hesitate to take appropriate disciplinary actions against any recalcitrant officer infringing on the fundamental human rights citizens whom we have the constitutional mandate to serve and protect.
