"A Video of a person being assaulted and dragged on the ground in Kwale has come to our attention. It has been confirmed that the incident occured within Ukunda in Kwale County," the statement read.
"The @IG_NPS has ordered the Regional Police Commander-Coast Region to immediately arrest all the perpetrators of the offence and arraign them before the court. Nobody is above the law and such acts of impunity will be met with the full force of the law," it added.
On Monday, IG Mutyambai launched investigations into another viral video of a frustrated female police officer who was begging to be allowed to resign.
Mr Mutyambai while responding to the video stated," I have learnt of a video trending on social media where a female Police Officer is captured lamenting against unfair treatment and sexual harassment. The officer is attached to the Traffic Department in Mombasa County. She had complained against a merchant hence subjected to an inquiry by @DCI_Kenya officers resulting in a departmental action. I have directed the Gender and Children Directorate to independently investigate the matter and give a report within 7 days."
In the video that went viral on Sunday, the policewoman mentions that she had written several resignation letters but were yet to reach Mr Mutyambai.
"Sir, kindly allow me to resign peacefully from the police officer post because I can thrive elsewhere. Even if it means, resigning without pay, I will not mind.
"I will leave here and work like any other citizen. The internal office is not helping at all. The president should disband this internal affairs office which is not carrying out its mandate,'' the female officer can be heard saying in the video.
