The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has arrested four officers accused of assaulting a lady in Rivers State. The officers were arrested on Monday after a video of the assault went viral on social media.

The video shows the officers stopping a car and ordering the driver and passenger out of the vehicle. The passenger, a young woman, is then seen being assaulted by the officers. She is punched and slapped, and her hair is pulled.

The officers then drive away, leaving the woman on the side of the road.

The woman, who has not been identified, has since filed a complaint with the police. The NPF has said that the officers will be investigated and, if found guilty, will be punished.

The arrest of the four officers has been welcomed by human rights groups and activists. They have called for the officers to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

This is not the first time that police officers in Nigeria have been accused of assaulting civilians. In recent years, there have been several cases of police brutality, including the killing of unarmed civilians.

The NPF has said that it is committed to ensuring that its officers are held accountable for their actions. The arrest of the four officers in Rivers State is a step in the right direction, but it is important to ensure that they are brought to justice.

The public is also urged to report any cases of police brutality to the authorities. By working together, we can help to create a culture of accountability within the police force.
