With the growing increment of police brutality in Nigeria, a lot of people have taken to the social media platform to complain about the disturbing practices by these officers of the law.
Recently, Nigerian sensational dancer popularly known as Janemena took to her Instagram page to give a detailed narration of how she fell a victim to police brutality in Asaba, Delta state. According to her story, her friend who was later discovered to be pregnant was strangled into a comma after which the policemen offered her a sum of N30k to pay the medical bills and also begged her to delete the videos she made.
Posting the videos and some photos from the incident, she narrated: "This whole issue started from a guy who refused to reverse back a little for my friend to drive by as she couldn’t go back herself Cos of the way my street was filled with stones and her car was really low. She then left her car on the same road the guy blocked and walked down to my house, 3mins later, we saw police men from ZONE 5 around the car, they were actually patrolling and stopped, I hurriedly told my friend to go check it out thinking we could resolve the situation amicably, on getting there, they were about to loosen her plate number leaving the other guys car that actually blocked the road and that’s when I intervened on her behalf, the minute I said “oga abeg leave the plate number” .
That’s how these guys shouted at me, WILL YOU GET OF HERE YOU B*STARD, YOU ARE BECOMING AN UNBECOMING, pointing at me, at this stage I asked him not to intimidate us with his guns or power, and that’s when he jacked up my dress, my kid sister came and intervented, before I could say “jack” these police men were dragging her on the floor, hitting her from left, right, centre and above. She actually fainted and another slap woke her up from her slumber. Thank God for a guy who came to save her from their grips, then a police woman that wasn’t on uniform, came at me shouting while we were resolving this issue again o. YOU THINK SEY YOU DEY MAD, I MAD PASS YOU, and then she came jacking at me too o and I held her dress close to her chest too to leave mine alone and that’s how they said I have beaten up a police woman “who wasn’t on uniform”.
These men put their handcuffs on me and was dragging me on the road to their hilux car, carrying me and hitting me like I was a criminal, all these, I still refused to enter and this went on for about 7mins before a soldier guy came and said if we must go anywhere, it must be his car I would enter, i agreed and went into his car, at this point he started asking me, what happened, my dear brothers and sister, the next thing I saw was the policeman hitting my pregnant friend telling her to stop the video and it resulted to her strangling her neck and she went into coma.
And that's when my live video started, they initially wanted to run but i ran infront of theirt hilux with my handcuffs still on, instead of them to carry my friend, they were dragging her and one of the guys shouted and they carried her into their hilux. Instead of these people to take her to the hospital, they took her to one ph*rmacy and the pharmacist told them he doesn't have the knid of injections they need.
These guys were still arguing if they should take her to government hospital or her own hospital, can you imagine. And then as i thought we were going to the hospital, these guys branched their police gra headquarters, back of macrons, Asaba Delta state. saying they want to get police report, nothing came out of this and they entered into the hilux and drove to her own hospital. On getting to the hospital, I FOUND OUT MY FRIEND WAS ACTUALLY PREGNANT WITH NOT ONE CHILD BUT FOUR CHILDREN. And i couldn't stop my tears, what they did to her, a mother of triplets. We were at the hosptial for about 3/4hrs before the O.C (officer in charge) came and was profusely apologising about the conduct of his boys, and that's how he brought out 30k for our treatments, and the boys kept apologizing and begging us to delete the videos.
When i left the hospital, my friend was on drip and drownsy so i couldn't speak to her at the moment but she's doing okay and the babies are in good health. But i'm still hurt and broken apart, my hands are swollen, my sisters ear hurt, she can't even hear well with her rifght ear. i know i will be taking this up with my lawyer and i wont let this type of incident happen to anyone ever again. They treated us badly because were all women and fragile. They have daughters and i'm not sure any of them would like to see their daughters mistreated. What if something bad had happened to my friend, what if??????? i'm calling on the Nigeria police force to look into this matter before i go out of line in connection with this. @policenglagos @aleeygiwa @instablog9ja @opetodolapo
