The Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu has called on members of the public and all parties particularly interest groups and four employees of the Signatious Hotel, Warri, Delta State who were allegedly stripped by the management to remain calm.

The hotel’s chairman Kenneth Gbagi, a former minister of state for education, was alleged to have ordered that the workers – three women and a man – be stripped naked over theft allegations.

In a statement posted on Twitter on Friday, the IGP said he would ensure justice, calling for patience as the police investigate the case.

The statement read: “The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, NPM, 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.”

Several human rights organisations have protested against the alleged treatment of the hotel workers, accusing the police of conniving with the hotel management to carry out the act.

Mr Gbagi has, however, denied giving the order.
