“After viewing the video, the Commissioner of Police, Kwara State, CP Paul Odama, psc+, swiftly directed that the policeman be identified and arrested.

“The Command wishes to state that the police inspector who is attached to Share Division in Irepodun LGA of Kwara State has been identified and discovered to be currently undergoing medical examination in the police clinic to ascertain the state of his mental health, as it was observed that his case is more medical than alcoholic.

“The result of his medical examination will determine the next action to be taken against him.
