Nigeria Police In Lagos State Brutalised an Okada Man and Stripped Naked
Some policemen yesterday beat up an unidentified okada rider and stripped him naked at the junction of University Road and St. Finbarr’s College Road in Akoka, Lagos on Wednesday.
The policemen who were in mufti laid ambush in a van with registration number NPF9544B and pounced on the okada rider immediately they saw him, beat him mercilessly and later asked him to take all his clothes off.
An eyewitness told our correspondent that he was dumbfounded at the inhumane behaviour of the policemen adding that the okada rider did not resist arrest.
This is dehumanizing. Is it right for the so called law enforcement agent to act in a barbaric manner ?
Is this right? How long can we continue like this?
