UPDATE: The amiable Benue State Commissioner of Police has intervened. After almost demoting the officers involved, he has thrown out the false claims against the woman, sent her home to her family and asked that all parties involved return to his office on Wednesday for proper investigation to start. #NeverKeepQuiet #wecandobetter Dear Nigerian Police @nigeriapoliceforce I pray this message meets you well. I want to report a case of intimidation, false accusation and arrest by some of your officers in Benue State Command Makurdi. As we speak they are being used by a fuel station manager to falsely hold a female employee Mrs Ifeoma. Your Dcp Bartray ibea is aware of this. She is being accused of stealing money by her angry boss because she refused his advances. Without any proof or even checking the office CCTV, they forced her to write a statement that she will pay back money she didnt steal. As we celebrate officer Tina @cop_teena for her great work, let's not let the devil use your officers in Benue to bring further disrepute to your uniform. I have every detail you may require. We are tired of injustice. Please handle this quickly. Her husband is currently at Benue State Command helpless. You can reach him on 08157118348 or her friend @queen_selizz to confirm.

He said the senators skipped the police reform bill, a bill to regulate embezzlement or police brutality to focus on fake news.
