Okada Rider Beaten Black And Blue, Clothes Taking Off By Lagos Policemen

According to a citizen reporter, the naked man in the pictures below is an Okada man who allegedly violated the new Lagos state traffic law.

He was apprehended at the junction adjoining University road and St Finbarrs college road Akoka, by policemen in mufti. Instead of charging him based on the dictates of the law, the policemen descended on the Okadaman, beating him black and blue before stripping him naked.

The inhuman treatment did not stop until sympathizers who had formed a crowd around the scene, pleaded with the policemen. Is the Nigeria Police truly your friend?

Police everywhere in the world are as a matter of civility refered to as “police” and not “police force”. They harrass the public with fire arms bought with public funds. I call on human rights groups to take up this act of lawlessness very seriously and bring the perpetrators to book promptly. We’ve had enough of this rubish. We are watching to see how the police will defend this dastardly act.
