Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has ordered the sack of Mr Friday Eluro, a security aide, who was caught on video assaulting a woman. The video has since gone viral with many commentators calling for his prosecution.
It was gathered that the aide has been arrested, while many involved in beating the woman are being sought by security agents.
Akready, Okowa, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Charles Aniagwu, in Asaba, has ordered full investigations of the incident.
Part of the statement reads: “In the last three and half years, our administration had worked so hard to entrench the enduring peace in our state.
“We will not sit back and fold our hands to watch appointees of government or any other person no matter how highly placed in the society to take laws into their hands.”
Okowa is said to have been so miffed after watching the unwarranted assault video, more so when a government appointee was involed, that he ordered ElurElurit’s immediate sack.
He subsequently directed state officials to be at their best as representatives of govrnment.
It was not clear on Friday what the unnamed woman in the video did to be assaulted by Eluro and others in the video, but it was speculated that she may have insulted him.
