Sergeant Alexander was demoted following an investigation by the police force after the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) threatened to embark on a strike over the assault incident which left Mr Edet’s hand fractured.
The police office who was found guilty after the investigation was concluded, was demoted from the rank of a sergeant to corporal.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Imohimi Edgal, met with Edet and Chairman of NMA in the state to apologise over the incident.
