“A CRY FOR JUSTICE
kubiat (FB:pdp Icon), a Uniuyo student waiting for NYSC enrollment this coming November was arrested by Nigerian Police (B division Ewet Housing estate) on Sunday at Eni stores by 7pm accusing him of arm rubbery. They took him to the station without filing the case they said he has committed, not even asking him of his name and address. They put him in a police cell and beaten him to death, that same night. oh, what a tragedy
On Monday, Friends heard that he was arrested went in searched of him at different police stations (Including B division) but they denied his arrest.
It was after his aunty put a call through to people in govt, and the commissioner of police was questioned, that was when they realized that it was the police squad from B division that arrested kubiat, beaten him, took him to police Headquarter Ikot Akpan Abia mortuary without the notice of any of his relatives, hmmmmm
What a world, they wasted his life just like that?
Nigerian police have to be questioned.
Justice must be served
The only son to his parent
So after they have killed you, they realized that they arrested the wrong person.
After the struggles, challenges you went through at Uniuyo and they couldn’t allow you to enjoy a bit of it
It shall never be well with those policemen. Amen
“Police are denying that they didn’t kill him,that Kubiat Isaac Akpan had health issue,now they want to conduct an AUTOPSY to see if this is true and the doctor is demanding 200k to do that.
Let the policemen pay for the autopsy, where will the sick parent get 200k and pay
It can never be well to those policemen”
