The Police spokesperson, ACP Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the arrests, stating that the investigation led to the quick apprehension of the officers and their accomplices, who had initially fled. Their capture underscores the Nigeria Police Force’s dedication to rooting out unprofessional conduct and ensuring that justice prevails.
