November 02, (THEWILL) – The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered an investigation into the alleged assault on woman Police Inspector, Bamidele Olorunsogo, by her DCO, Ajayi Matthew, in Ode-Omu, Osun state.
The IGP issued the order to the Commissioner of Police in Osun, Olaleye Faleye, after a video showing a hapless, dehumanized and tortured Bamidele went viral on social media.
In the video, Bamidele accused Matthew, a senior colleague of hers at the Ode-Omu Police Divisional Headquarters in Osun State, of assault and blackmail.
The policewoman alleged that Matthew had asked her out but declined his advances because she was married.
She said, “What is my offence? He started beating me to the extent, he stripped me. Look at my chest, arms, everywhere, there are injuries. He’s Ajayi Matthew. He asked me out, that I should befriend him. I said no, that I’m a married woman.
“He started blackmailing me, claiming that he’s my lover, which is not true.”
Matthews has not commented on the allegation
Meanwhile, Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Wednesday, said the Force Headquarters will await a report of the investigation from the Osun State Command, and take necessary actions on the matter.
“We will await the report of the investigation from the Osun State Police Command before necessary actions are taken.
“We, however, assure the general public that justice will be done on this case, to protect the core values and ethics of the NPF”, Adejobi said
