PC Okoi Liyomo, a police officer caught beating a guy with a cutlass in Cross River State, has been ordered to stand trial by the IGP, Usman Alkali Baba.

Early this week, the video of the policeman wielding the cutlass’s blade as an implement of discipline was widely shared on social media, drawing the attention of the Nigerian Police Force.

Adejobi said Liyomo met with the IGP on Thursday and will be prosecuted for the incident, according to a tweet.

In Cross Rivers State, a viral video showed PC Okoi Liyomo beating a single man with a cutlass. He was taken to the Force Headquarters in Abuja, he added. Yesterday he met with the IGP. The IGP has issued a warrant for his arrest and trial. The trial is still ongoing, and I am anxiously awaiting the results.

“We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.” It goes without saying that we will not tolerate any form of incivility or lawlessness in the NPF; there will be no tolerance for sloppiness or stupidity here.
