Four days after one acclaimed Uber driver, Adedotun Clement was tortured by some policemen and officials of the Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps during the #EndSARS memorial protest, though, the police authorities are yet to begin disciplinary procedures against the cops.

However, the Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps had since suspended two officers over their roles in the incident.

According to reports, security agents particularly policemen and officials of the LNSC brutalised Clement, including some protesters and journalists, when some youths last Wednesday flooded the Lekki tollgate to mark the one year anniversary of the #EndSARS campaign.

Meanwhile, attacks on protesters were filmed by residents and journalists, who were present at the scene.

A clip showing the beating of Clement, however, went viral.

In the clip, policemen and officials of the LNSC were seen slapping and using pepper spray on the Uber driver, as he protested against being locked up in a Black Maria and begged to be identified.

The General Manager, LNSC, Ifalade Oyekan, who condemned the action of his officers, said they had been suspended for unruly behaviour.
