“They have been dismissed from the Force,” the police said.

The two officer assigned to Iwo Division of Osun State Police Command were seen assaulting a woman at the Odo Ori Market, Iwo, Osun State, in a video in early April.

 The police officers interrogated the woman on an unknown issue and soon began pulling her by the clothes she wore in the video

Taiwo and Ibrahim continuously flogged the woman with canes despite pleas by sympathisers to stop the assault.
