Chairman of the Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri, has said the South African Police is being sued over the assault on a Nigerian resident in the country.
This comes after news spread wide of ex-Big Brother Africa housemate and Nigerian model, Tayo Faniran, who was assaulted and strangled by a South African police on Friday.
Tayo was about his business in the country as he was moving in his car when a police stopped him and assaulted him without any evidence against him.
Tayo made sure to document the incident as he made a live video for the whole world to see what happened and later explained in another separate video how he was thoroughly tortured by the police.
According to an Instagram live video shared online, Faniran was arrested and brutally tortured after he refused to enter an unmarked police vehicle.
Dabiri-Erewa, however, got hold of the news and gave a report about the release of Faniran and said she was going to ensure justice was served in this matter.
She said that the South African Police have been sued and that a case is being pressed against them for their brutality.
