Police Officer Demoted For Assaulting Medical Doctor In Akwa Ibom by Islie: 2:59pm On Apr 05
A police officer deployed to the Akwa Ibom State command has been demoted for assaulting a medical doctor while enforcing the stay-at-home order of the Akwa Ibom government.

Recall that the Akwa Ibom State government had exempted health workers from its lockdown order, which was effected to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the state.

The police sergeant, Edidiong Alexander assaulted Dr Daniel Edet who is a surgeon with the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, while on his way to work on Friday evening.

It was gathered that the police began investigating the incident after the Nigerian Medical Association threatened to embark on a strike over the assault incident which left Mr Edet’s hand fractured.

The police office who was found guilty after the investigation was concluded, was demoted from the rank of a sergeant to corporal. The state’s commissioner of police, Imohimi Edgal also met with Mr Edet and the chairman of NMA in the state, and apologised to the surgeon and the medical doctors in Akwa Ibom over the conduct of the police officer.

Akwa Ibom state has only recorded five confirmed cases of the coronavirus, since the outbreak of the disease in the country.

Corporal Edidiong's demotion is a testament that 73% of them in the force are stark illiterates...


A simple courtesy would have surprisingly promoted him, but Akpan choose to be stupid.



Now see where it has brought him to.

This ss3 boys on black most of them don't listen to news, they think it's business as usual. because most of the citizens, don't know there right, they assume they can do anything and go scout free. I laugh because he bashed the right car, that serves him right and also as caution to his fellow black folks.

Damnnnnn niggarrr
Isoright

Hope say them carry out proper investigation before them demote that man.
Because most Nigerians dey always look down on police officers. They abuse and disrespect this officers thinking they are not educated.
there are always three side to a story

1) the complainant own version( the doctor)
2) the accused own story( the police man)
3) the true story
Hope say them consider this three things first before the demotion

Medical doctors are rare specie of people that must be treated specially. That being said, any police officer assaulting any Nigerian irrespective of status of the person should also be given this same "Demotion" punishment.

Just imagine the beating that would have resulted in fracturing the hand of a surgeon from a common Sergeant

So it had to take the threat of going on strike for justice to be done. The so called police man should have been dismissed with immediate effect instead of demotion
