An assistant commissioner of police (ACP) Oluseyi Okenla has allegedly assaulted Sergeant Helen Onoja in Enugu.

Reacting to the alleged incident, the commissioner of police in Enugu Lawal Abubakar ordered an investigation, a statement by the spokesman Daniel Ndukwe on Saturday said.

“The investigation will held establish the facts surrounding the allegations and apportioning appropriate disciplinary sanctions on whoever is found culpable,” Ndukwe said.

The police spokesman noted that the commissioner had reassured the general public that no stone would be left unturned in getting to the root of the matter and meting out appropriate sanctions.

He noted that the police remained a regimented and disciplined agency that would stop at nothing to subject its personnel (male or female, or of senior or junior rank) to extant disciplinary codes, processes and punishments whenever they erred.

Ndukwe said that the commissioner had enjoined the general public to avoid creating or peddling skewed narratives over the incident as alleged.

“The command is urging all and sundry to count on the command to activate the investigative and internal disciplinary mechanisms of the Nigeria Police to ensure that justice prevails,” he said.
