Lagos Police To Investigate Actor Gideon Okeke’s Alleged Brutalization
Nollywood actor Gideon Okeke on Sunday shared a story of how he was allegedly beaten by officers of the Nigeria Police Force.
He ran into another vehicle at the Lekki Phase 1 roundabout, he shared, when the incident took place.
He’d called for the assistance of some officers who were “less than 10 feet away,” he wrote on his Instagram, to get barricades off the road so they could park properly to inspect and sort out the damage.
It was then the policemen attacked both him and the woman whose car he hit.
He shared a video of himself on his Instagram, writing about how he had to get stitches after the attack. Check out the video:
The police’s Zonal Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, has however revealed that the Lagos Police Commissioner Edgal Imohimi has ordered an investigation into the case.
She wrote on her Instagram:
