The Nigeria Police Force says it has commenced an investigation into a video trending on social media showing policemen interrogating a 25-year-old female suspect and asking her embarrassing questions about her sex life.

The tweets read in part, “The Inspector General of Police has ordered discreet investigations into the circumstances surrounding the dehumanising treatment meted out to a female citizen in the above viral video.
“The IGP, while condemning the act, has directed the commencement of comprehensive investigations aimed at unravelling the true identity of the perpetrators with a view to bringing them to justice.
“Members of the public are hereby assured that any member of the Force found culpable in the incident will be made to face appropriate sanctions.”
In the undated amateur video which is about six minutes long, a policeman who identified himself as ‘Wyclef’ along with his colleagues, interrogate a young lady named Towobola.
Towobola was arrested in Ibadan when policemen raided a building where a suspected kidnapper was living.
The policemen, after taking the kidnap suspect away, faced Towobola, handcuffed her and accused her of sleeping with the alleged kidnapper.
Wyclef is seen mocking Towobola and telling her that young ladies are fond of dating men with questionable wealth which often lands them in trouble
He mockingly states that if he were to woo Towobola, she would not give in to his advances but would rather have sex with criminals.
The policeman subsequently asks her if she is a virgin and how many men she has slept with.
