The motives behind the officer's behaviour remain unclear, with some speculating that it may have been an attempt to stop the vehicle or apprehend the driver. However, many people criticised the officer for using excessive force and putting the lives of both the driver and other road users at risk.

Reacting to the video, the Spokesperson of the Police, Prince Olumuyiwa requested the Force’s compliant unit to look into the incident, calling for immediate investigation of the matter.

Meanwhile, the video reignited debates surrounding police conduct and the use of force, with many calling for stricter regulations and oversight to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

Civil rights activists have condemned the officer's actions, emphasising the need for proper training and accountability within law enforcement agencies.
