Story tells that the police officer Mr Ekeneme visited his house on the 13th january, 2019 by 2am while he was sleeping with his family and forcefully arrested him, took him away even when his little daughter was crying for help for her father’s freedom rather she was thrown aside and locked him up in the cell and he lasted four days in the cell.
Later they collected the sum of #50,000 for his bail out and he died on the way to the hospital for the treatment of the beatings they gave him.
Meanwhile, it is believed that he died out of torture police gave him because many bruises were found on his body. And no one is said to have reported any case against him. He was even nailed, hung on air and his neck was broken. We are calling on all the high spirited individuals to come for the cry of his pregnant wife and family and brought the perpetrators to book.
Now they want to bury him secretly so as to end the case. When my family resisted, they threatened to kill all the other innocent guys arrested over the same issue.
