The Nigeria Police Force has reacted to the viral story of alleged dehumanizing treatment on the Signatious Hotel staff in Warri, Delta state.
The hotel is said to be owned by a former minister for state for education, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, who is also from the state.
A statement sent to journalists on Saturday, September 26 by police spokesman, DCP Frank Mba read:
“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, NPM, mni has called on members of the public, particularly the alleged victims and all interest groups in the ongoing police investigations into the case of dehumanizing treatment on the Signatious Hotel staff in Warri, Delta state, to remain calm as the police intensify efforts towards unravelling the circumstances surrounding the incident.
“The IGP, while noting that the Delta state police command has since commenced discrete investigations into the matter with appreciable progress made, assures that justice will prevail no matter whose ox is gored.”
Gbagi has since declared that he did not strip anybody naked as portrayed in the trending videos and photographs, saying the people involved were having sex among themselves when a fight broke out among them.
Part of a statement he released read:
“What you see circulating are photographs of these persons who were sexually harassing themselves in one of our guest houses, not the hotel, as it is being rumoured.”
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police Force has pledged continuous support to discourage examination malpractices during the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
This is as 12 suspects were arrested for their involvement in various examination malpractices in the just concluded WASSCE in some states across the country, a police statement revealed.
