According to spokesman of the command, Bala Elkana, “The CP is saddened with the apparent unprofessional conduct exhibited by some police officers identified in a trending video and has ordered for their immediate arrest and investigation.

“Police officers involved in the enforcement of restriction orders across the state are further warned to exercise their discretionary powers with utmost professionalism, compassion and respect for the rights of the citizens. The Commissioner of Police reaffirm his stance on zero tolerance for impunity by Police Officers.
