A video of Nigerian prison service officers beating up the brother and sister of a detainee who died in their custody in Gombe state has gone viral after first appearing on TVC.

According to reports, the siblings had claimed that their relative was not giving adequate treatment while he was sick in prison before he was brought to the hospital where he died.

An accusation the prison commission strongly refuted, stating that they gave him adequate treatment before he died at the hospital.

They, however, resorted to violence when their accusers continued to insist they didn't do the needful.

In the video, the officers are seen slapping and pushing the lady out of their sight while they kicked, hit and dragged the brother into their van.
