The Kwara State Police Commissioner, Paul Odama, issued the directive due to the highly repulsive video of the police inspector presently making the rounds on various social media platforms.
After viewing the video, Odama swiftly directed that the policeman be identified and arrested, a statement by the spokesman of the state police command, SP Okasanmi Ajayi, disclosed in Ilorin on Sunday.
“The Command wishes to state that the police inspector who is attached to Share Division in Irepodun LGA of Kwara State has been identified and discovered to be currently undergoing medical examination in the police clinic to ascertain the state of his mental health, as it was observed that his case is more medical than alcoholic,” he said.
The statement said the result of the inspector’s medical examination will determine the next action to be taken against him.
“Consequently, the CP has directed that the inspector be put under close observation by his immediate supervisor, the Divisional Police Officer of Share Division pending the conclusion of his treatment,” the statement added.
