The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has arrested six men for inserting fresh pepper in a lady’s private parts.
In a video that went viral on Wednesday, the men forcefully dragged an unnamed naked woman to the ground. One of them initially threw the pepper at her. Moments afterwards, the men forced the lady to the ground, spread her legs apart, and crushed the pepper on her insides while she kept screaming.
The person who recorded the incident seemed to be one of the perpetrators.
A statement by the Police on Thursday noted that the Inspector General of Police had ordered an investigation into the incident.
The statement read: “Operatives of the NPF have arrested six (6) male suspects involved in the shocking, barbaric and indecent assault meted out on a young Nigerian female as shown in a video that recently went viral.
“Following the dehumanizing incident, the IGP MA ADAMU, NPM, mni has ordered a comprehensive investigation.
“Consequently, Edo Police Command, led by its Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosun, swung into action, leading to the investigation breakthrough.
“Two other male suspects are still at large. Efforts are being intensified to arrest them and bring all involved to book.
“NPF condemns jungle justice in its entirety and warns of dire consequences for persons who resort to self help.”
The six male suspects currently in custody are Otoghile Joel, Lucky Igbinovia, Edobor Osemwenjie, Kingsley Iyamu, Gregg Eweka and Friday Omorogbe.
