The victims, Erowo Ekere and her sister, Joy, had in a petition through their lawyer, Dele Igbinedion, ‎accused the woman sergeant, Edith Agholor, of brutalising them with a machete while under detention at Oleh Police Station on December 29, 2016.

They had urged police authorities to take disciplinary actions against the sergeant and three others and also demanded N100m compensation or face legal action within seven days.

But the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 5, Abubakar Muhammed, who spoke shortly after the decoration of 49 newly promoted officers on Tuesday, said though the accused officer had denied the allegation, she would be investigated before being arraigned if found culpable.

The AIG, who spoke through the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, Emeka Iheanacho, said, “The matter is with us; we have gone far with our investigation. The woman police on her part denied but we have called for more witnesses. So at the end of the day, we are going to address the press.

“The woman police officer has been invited and has made a statement and the woman that was inflicted with machete cut injuries has equally made a statement. So, we are calling for all the witnesses that saw the incident.

“If at the end of the day, it was established that the woman sergeant actually did that, we will subject her to our disciplinary measure before taking her to court.”

 Mohammed said the promotion exercise was part of efforts by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to boost the welfare and performance of the officers.
