Still on police brutality in Nigeria

More voices are rising against the unprofessional conduct of some officers of the law.

A member of the Federal House of Representatives, Obinna Chidoka who represents Idemili North and South Federal Constituency, has narrator on social media his ordeal with officers of the Nigerian police who he alleged were brutalising a young man for splashing water on their driver.

Obinna said the incident transpired as he was driving along Owerri-Obosi road and the brutalized Nigerian man he identified as a member of his constituency.

Obinna claims the police officers attacked him when he attempted to intervene and stop them from further brutalizing the civilian.

According to @chidokaobinna “Yesterday, I had my own encounter with some unprofessional members of the Nigerian police force. I was in traffic along the Owerri – Obosi road when I saw some members of the Nigerian police force brutalizing a civilian for allegedly splashing water on their driver.”

“I alighted from my car and immediately approached the scene of the violence, tried to stop the police officers from further assaulting my this young man that I later found out was my constituent only to be greeted with the greatest shock of my life, I got my own fair share of the attack.”

“The event quickly detoriated and almost escalated as some of my constituents seeing that I was being assaulted quickly mobilized themselves and wanted to launch a reprisal attack on these policemen.”

“I quelled the situation immediately and begged my constituents not to take the laws into their hands. You will recall that this is not the first time something like this is happening in my constituency. The last such unprofessional conduct of some Policemen, led to the death of two young men at Nkpor.”

“I condemn all forms of police brutality in very strong terms and as your legislator, I will use the platform of the National Assembly to ensure my constituents and Nigerians in general are not brutalized by nefarious police officers that ought to protect us.”

“I have made a formal complaint of this incidence and will follow it up. I urged all of us to continue to be law abiding as we cannot resolve such inhuman, uncouth and unprofessional actions by violence.”
