Wielding the whip would not have been someone's primary task - and their job title would have been something different. It's a bit like calling a chef a saucepan-stirrer - it gives some idea of one element of their job, but it sounds stupid and is inaccurate.

It's likely to have been a jailer, a guard, an over-seer, the captain of the guard, or whatever.
