The two policemen caught on video fighting will be arrested, investigated and dismissed, the Force headquarters has said.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, told our correspondent over the telephone on Sunday that the men would face orderly room trial for their conduct.
Ojukwu said, “We have seen the video and I can tell you that the men would be identified and apprehended to face disciplinary action. They will face orderly room trial and they will be dismissed,” he stated.
An online video of the two policemen had provoked criticisms from Nigerians who flayed their conduct.
The video, which was uploaded to YouTube on Friday by Sharebitmag with the caption, “Two Nigeria police caught fighting in Lagos,” showed the incident took place at the entrance of a bank.
