The video shows a woman carrying a baby in her arms and some five men wearing bull caps moving around. Two of these men had a rifle in their hands. One man shoved the woman aside hitting the baby’s head with the bottom of his rifle. The enraged mayor stressed this in his Facebook post. He is giving away P100K reward to whoever can identify these men “especially the policeman who put the butt of his rifle to the baby’s head“. The video also shows a man beaten by these alleged policemen. Click the link below to see the full video.

Mayor Tommy is calling for the cooperation of all concerned citizens. “If this is a ‘legitimate police operation’, there should be nothing to hide. But the police are not cooperating with providing the identities of these men, so anyone with information can text me directly at 0917 329 9999.”, the Mayor said.
