A video of men of the Nigerian police force assaulting a nursing mother has gone viral on social media.
According to reports, the woman and her 2-month-old baby were arrested because the officers were unable to get hold of her husband who was suspected to be an internet fraudster.
In the video, one of the officers, suspected to be the leader of the men who had gone for the operation, was seen pushing the woman inside a car as she struggled with him.
Residents of the building where the policemen had gone to effect the arrest were heard screaming as the man tried to force the woman into the vehicle.
A female voice could be heard shouting "don't push that woman" while another man asked the officer to be professional but instead of adhering to the suggestions of the neighbours, the officer dared them to step down.
