House Member Attacked by Policemen, Vows to Stop Brutality
The House Member representing Idemili North and South Federal Constituency, Anambra State, Rt. Hon. Obinna Chidoka has spoken against police brutality after having an encounter with some men of the police force at Owerri-Obosi road.
According to the honourable member, he saw some policemen brutalizing a civilian for allegedly splashing water on their driver.
Chidoka condemned all forms of police brutality in very strong terms and promised to use his platform to ensure Nigerians are not brutalized by the nefarious policemen.
Read his post below; “Yesterday, I had my own encounter with some unprofessional members of the Nigerian police force. I was in traffic along the Owerri – Obosi road when I saw some members of the Nigerian police force brutalizing a civilian for allegedly splashing water on their driver.”
“I alighted from my car and immediately approached the scene of the violence, tried to stop the police officers from further assaulting this young man that I later found out was my constituent only to be greeted with the greatest shock of my life,
I got my own fair share of the attack.”
“The event quickly deteriorated and almost escalated as some of my constituents seeing that I was being assaulted quickly mobilized themselves and wanted to launch a reprisal attack on these policemen.
I quelled the situation immediately and begged my constituents not to take the laws into their hands. You will recall that this is not the first time something like this is happening in my constituency. The last such unprofessional conduct of some Policemen led to the death of two young men at Nkpor. I condemn all forms of police brutality in very strong terms and as your legislator,
I will use the platform of the National Assembly to ensure my constituents and Nigerians, in general, are not brutalized by nefarious police officers that ought to protect us.
I have made a formal complaint of this incidence and will follow it up. I urge all of us to be law-abiding.
As we cannot resolve such inhuman, unclothe and unprofessional actions by violence!
