Some police operatives in Anambra have been accused of invading the hostel of a female student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) and brutalising the inhabitant who was said to be unclad.

Sources on Wednesday confirmed that officers attached to the special anti-cult unit of the Anambra police broke into a private hostel housing students of UNIZIK to arrest suspected fraudsters in Ifite, Awka South LGA.

The invasion was said to have occurred at 4 am on Sunday.

A resident was quoted to have said the armed police officers brutalised the neighbours when they denied knowing any fraudster.

Narrating her ordeal in a video, a female student bearing bruises on her arm said “the police officers beat me while I was naked.”

“They broke the door and came into my flat. Ever since they broke the door, if we want to sleep, we use a chair to brace the door at the back. This is where they were beating me and I was naked,” she was quoted to have said.
