This is beyond WICKEDNESS. The only thing the police IG can do to say he isn’t in support of this or this will never be tolerated in the Nigerian Police Force is for this man to be dismissed and prosecuted. Sometimes things like this needs to be done so that it never repeats itself and so that others can learn from it. Being a police man does not make you superior than other citizens. Anyway, WARDC (a group that fights for women) are already on the case, but the IG needs to make this man a scape goat. It’s beyond wicked.
