The Lagos State Police Command has condemned the inhuman treatment of Mr Macaroni, a social media comedian, and other protesters arrested during the protest at the Lekki tollgate area of Lagos state on Saturday.
Muyiwa Adejobi, Police spokesman in Lagos said in a statement on Sunday that the office-in-charge of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, DCP Adegoke Fayoade, had been ordered to analyse a trending video showing the arrested suspects being subjected to dehumanising conditions.
He stated that the persons responsible for the act would be brought to book.
Adejobi said, “The attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video where some arrested “Endsars protesters” were being molested in a bus by some individuals after their arrest.
“The state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, who was piqued by this unprofessional and inhuman act, has ordered the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State CID, Panti, DCP Adegoke Fayoade, to analyse the video and bring to book whoever that must have been responsible for the act.
