You Have No Right To Respond If A Policeman In Uniform Slaps You – Force PRO Tells Nigerians

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, has explained what should happen if a police officer slaps a civilian,

He said that if a policeman should slap a ‘civilian’, the person has no right to retaliate.

AdejobI, who took to his Twitter account, advised any such victim to file a complaint with the law enforcement agency.

Reacting to a viral video of a man dragging a rifle with a policeman during a heated argument, the police spokesman further stated that if a person should assault police personnel in uniform, it would be seen as ‘an act of disrespect to Nigeria.’

He said, “Even if a policeman on uniform slaps a civilian, the civilian has no right to retaliate. More so, if he’s on uniform, it’s an act of disrespect to Nigeria to beat an officer on uniform. The disrespect is not to the policeman but to our nation and it’s a crime as enshrined in our criminal laws.

“So, it’s not a case of what the policeman did that led to it, but the reaction of the civilians who actually assaulted the police. If police assault a civilian, you report and actions will be taken to rebuke him, not to take the law into your hands.” (sic)
