Serious gbege as Policemen handcuff driver to patrol van dey drag am

People don seriously condemn as police chain one Edo State driver to their patrol truck kon dey drag am along Sopkonba Road Junction, Benin, the Edo State capital.

Dem also detain one resident, Augustine Ogbomwan, wey dey record the whole scene as e dey happen.

As the matter take go, na the police wey dem attach to Esigie Police Division stop the driver on Sunday. Dem tell the driver make he come down from em motor as dem search am.

One businessman, Franklyn Irabor, wey dey stay close to where the gbege take happen, talk say when the police no fit find anything ontop the driver dem kon search the passengers wey dey inside the motor, but dem no see any criminal thing for their body.

He say,

“One of the policemen bent down and picked something from the ground.  He then challenged the passenger over the item, which they said was hemp.

“Suddenly, the passenger fled and they arrested the driver. They hit him with their batons and guns before handcuffing him to their patrol truck. They drove away as the man initially struggled to catch up before falling, while the police van dragged him on the road.

“The driver started calling for help. We could not bear the man’s pain and we decided to intervene. The policemen challenged us for interrupting police business.

“My elder brother, Courage, who was with me, told them that there was no justification for their action; but they asked him to shut up. One of the officers cocked his gun and threatened to shoot us.

“We thought it was a joke, until they started firing into the air. One of them pushed my brothers away and another one came and handcuffed me. They hit me in the back with the butt of their guns. I sustained bruises. They slapped my brother who tried to stop them from arresting me. They also handcuffed him with me.”

Franklyn kon talk say na that point people kon gather around them, to take stop the police make dem no carry them go.

He talk say the police kon call new set of police from their division for back up. And as the new team kon come na so dem kon blame the police wey dey there sey why dem go chain the driver for motor dey drag am.

“The policemen that arrested me and my brothers were in mufti, while the new policemen were in uniforms. The ones in uniforms told the other team that it was wrong for them to handcuff and drag the driver on the road.

“Because of the disagreement between the two teams, the ones in mufti left. One of the other policemen apologised to us for our injuries and said he would find the key of the handcuffs. After about 45 minutes, they came and unlocked our handcuffs,”

Dem arrest the person wey post the video online, kon detain am.

“They actually arrested him on that Sunday and he slept in the station till Monday when he was released after paying N30,000 for bail. They asked him to come for his mobile phone on Tuesday.

“But when they saw that the video, which was posted by another person, had gone viral, the Investigating Police Officer, Inspector Idemudia, detained Ogbowan when he went to collect the phone on Tuesday. The IPO said he was acting on the orders of the Divisional Police Officer, who felt embarrassed by the video. The man is still in detention,”

One Chosen Edosa talk about Esigie Police Division sey na one notorious police station be that.

He say,

“Esigie division is a place where animal police are. They have done a lot of injustice to my family. Drivers along Akpapava Road, from First Junction to Second Junction (are usually victims); they don’t let taxi drivers have peace. When they are hungry, they go for drivers who are looking for their daily bread. And when you get to their station, you will ask them, ‘Oga wetin I do?’ and they will say, ‘Go bring N10,000 to clear your motor.’ I have a lot of bad experience with them.”

One Facebook user, Friday Ighodaro, wey comment ontop the picture suggest sey make dem fire the policemen wey dey involve for the matter for lack of professionalism.
