A video of a man being assaulted by officers of the Nigerian police force has gone viral on social media.
The man, who is said to be a lawyer, seemed to be involved in an argument with one of the officers at first but it quickly escalated into a physical attack, with another officer joining in.
The video was shared by a Facebook user, Ben Chuks Udoh, who reported that the incident happened at Osuma bus-stop on Akwa road, Onitsha.
"Policemen in uniform assaulting a lawyer at Osuma bus-stop, Akwa, road, Onitsha, Anambra State," he captioned the video which he shared.
Police assault and exploitation have become a rampant issue in recent times, with several Nigerians complaining about the assaults they suffer at the hands of police.
This week, a young student took to Twitter to report a case of exploitation after he was stopped in a cab and taken to a station where he was asked to pay 130 thousand naira.
