A Nigerian man, Sagacious Louis from Delta State has shared his tragic encounter with police officers yesterday.
He claimed the officers abused, brutalized and assaulted him using the butt of their rifles leading to him sustaining deep cuts in my head.
According to his explanation, ‘the reason for the assault was simply because I asked them to give access to a vehicular movement that their own vehicles were obstructing’.
See his full explanation below:
“The Nigerian Police brutality continued on Nigerians citizens just today again in Owhelogbo Junction,Ozoro,Isoko North,Delta state . they abused,brutalized and assaulted me using the but of their rifles leading to my sustaining deep cuts in my head . I am presently admitted in Ozoro general Hospital .
The Police team is led by one Nelson whose other name I cannot recall but with the force number 444916. the Mobile Police Personnel attached to AGIP before proceeding to the flow station in Isoko South carried out this unjustified abuse on my right as a law abiding citizen.
The reason for the assault was simply because I asked them to give access to vehicular movement that their own vehicles were obstructing.
I have made a formal complaint to the Ozoro Division of police for investigation.”
