In a statement by Force spokesperson, Frank Mba on Sunday, the IGP said the decorum maintained by Ogunyemi during the assault was commendable.

The statement reads, “Since the commencement of the COVID-19 enforcement duties, a total of 27 police personnel have suffered series of attacks and assaults from members of the public at different times and different locations.

“Many of these officers are still in hospitals receiving treatment from the injuries sustained during such attacks.

“The IGP enjoins the citizens to continue to cooperate with the police and other security personnel and voluntarily comply with all COVID-19 prevention orders.”
