The acting Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, has ordered the disbandment of the Edo State tactical team, who ran over a resident with their vehicle in Ekpoma.
The announcement was contained in a statement issued on Thursday by Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, via his Twitter handle.
Adejobi said the step was taken to regularize and standardize police operations in the axis while restoring public trust in the Police Force.
He noted that the IGP is committed to holding officers accountable for their actions which will never be tolerated in the Nigeria Police Force.
Recall that a viral video last week showed the moment policemen in Edo State handcuffed a yet-to-be-identified man and ran a vehicle over him.
