A Twitter user identified as @harrisonmbamara has shared a video that captured moment some Nigeria police officers flogged an Aba residents with a Machete. In the video, four police officers were seen forcing an unknown man and woman to do frog jump in a quiet street. All of a sudden, the man was forced to lie on the road as the police officers used machete on him. It is unclear why the two were being punished but from the voices from the clip, the officers were heard shouting at their victims who appeared helpless. Reacting to this, the Abia State Commissioner for Information, John Kalu condemned the video saying, “While we sympathize with the Police over the cowardly attack by yet to be identified hoodlums, we will not tolerate acts of brutality against innocent Abians and residents. “The state government will investigate the authenticity of the video with a view to punishing whoever is found to have unleashed brutality on innocent citizens. “We call on the police not to succumb to the temptation to engage in knee jerk response but to painstakingly identify the culprits and bring them to justice,” Mr Kalu told Premium Times, Tuesday. Nigeria’s human rights record has continued to deteriorate, despite more than two decades of democratic rule.
