A policeman in Ajiwe, Ajah, Lagos State has been arrested over a viral video that shows him assaulting Nollywood actress, Joju Muse.

The Tinsel actress had on Tuesday posted the video of her shouting at the policeman she accused of scratching her car.

“You scratched me, you want to show you are a policeman, continue,” the actress is heard screaming as the policemen walks up to her car, breaks the glass and sprayed an acidic substance inside the vehicle.

All that happened in the presence of a Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) personnel who looked on helplessly.

Speaking later about the incident at an event recorded by rapper, Ruggedman, Lagos State police spokesman, Chike Oti, said that Joju had lodged a complaint with the police and the erring policeman arrested.

Oti called on the public to help them “police the police”.

At the sit down with the police and concerned youths this morning, I got loads of tags on the Video of an officer assaulting actress April Muse @jojumuse. I immediately told and showed @opetodolapo who was seated beside me and she swung into action. When it was my turn to speak, it was one of the things i spoke about and @aleeygiwa and oga Moshood were shocked and all got on their phones to see the video. Just an hour after, the Lagos Force PRO of @policenglagos @chikeotigodwin just announced that the officer from Ajiwe police station that assaulted actress April Muse has been arrested. That April is at the station as we speak. We all need to do our best to keep exposing such officers wether sars or not. We all need to play our part in this matter to #ENDSARSBRUTALITY #endpolicebrutality #MakePoliceourfriend @police_complaint_rru @chinnysblog @instablog9ja
