Amidst the call for the end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad SARS, the newly formulated Special Weapons And Tactics unit SWAT and a reform of the Nigerian Police Force, a Nigeria tweep had recounted the fresh Ordeal he had suffered today.
Taking to the streets of Twitter, Abdulateef Adeleke noted that while he was traveling from Edo to Niger State, his bus was stopped by men of the Nigerian Police Force at a checkpoint in Kogi, which was just the beginning of his woes.On sighting him with his phone, the young man reported it was concluded that he was recording a video at the checkpoint and he was told to alight. He was then handcuffed and brutalised with tear gas directly to his face.
As if this was not enough, Abdulateef noted that the Policemen then asked him to pay the sum of 60,000 naira if he wanted the handcuffs off his hands. After about an hour of negotiation, the young man noted he was made to use the POS to pay the sum of 25,000 naira after which his video evidences were deleted.Photos Credit: Twitter
