The Inspector General of Police, Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has ordered investigations into the circumstances surrounding the alleged assault on the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Joe Ajaero.
The Force spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, added that the IGP has directed the Deputy Inspector General in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) to take over the matter with the primary objective of ascertaining the facts surrounding the incident and to address any ambiguities that might exist as the Police has been inundated with different versions of the incident making investigations imperative to clear the conflicting accounts.
Adejobi further said: “The Nigeria Police Force understands the importance of transparency and accountability in maintaining public trust.
“The IGP therefore assures the public, most especially the leadership of the organized labour, that a thorough and unbiased inquiry will be conducted to provide clarifications while urging organised labour and the public to remain calm, as he has personally intervened to address the issues surrounding this incident.
“The investigation has commenced, and the Nigeria Police Force guarantees that it will be followed to a conclusive end, and appropriate actions will be taken based on the findings of the investigation.”
