It was gathered that on Thursday 19th of may 2016, about 8 heavy armed men storm the residence of Paul Chukwuka where he also has his house finishing material store, order him to enter their vehicle, while the latter was trying to know why such arrest is for him, they bounce on him as if they gave them Order to brutalized him, he was handcuffed beaten and while his wife Ebele Paul and their little child were shouting for help from the Neighbors, his wife too were beaten and stripped naked in the present of sympathizers.
He was taking to Area K command where he was detained for over 72 hours, beaten severally with different wound scattered all over his body, he was later released on bail. In our attempt to Investigate the cause of such Magnitude of brutality in this model democratically world, some media House visited Obada zone 5 to hear from some eyes witness to the scenario, this paper was one of the media house that visited the area, our first call point was with the chairman of the Igbo community in Obada and it Patron. Mr. Samuel Egwu and Alex Nwagwu respectively.
Speaking with the media, the president Obada zone 5 Igbo Community, Samuel Egwu lamented the unprofessional conduct of the men of the police force from Area K command on how they carried out the arrest of Mr. police a member of his community, hear him, yes I gathered that there was a transaction between Paul and this woman in question,paul sold a bed to that woman and after 3 years the woman refuses to pay back and you know that in business no company gives three year guaranty, so I learnt that Mr. Paul asked for his money and the woman went straight to Area K to lay allegation that Mr. Paul beat her, the police just come bounce on the gentle man beat him together with his wife and child, please I asked is it proper, without asking about the genesis of the disagreement between the two of them, look before now we believe police is our friend but now it clear that they are our enemies, you just act on one side story and start to brutalize an innocent soul, we want to use this opportunity to call on the inspector general of police Solomon Arase to please in a matter of urgent set up a panel of enquirers to know what really happen before his men kill all of us in this community. I am really disappointed in Nigeria police. I will also want to call on our amiable governor to come to the aid of our community in term of road and drainage because when its rain our children were always at home because the flood is always too much he concluded. Also speaking in the same vein, the patron of Igbo community Obada fortune estate Alex nwagwu lambast the Nigeria police for their action in the area, he said for men of the police force to handle a very sensitive cases like that, then some of their men lack professionalism, if you have some of those men as your friend then you don’t have friend because they did not have regards for human being, look people are always afraid to see the police , I have travel wide and far, I do ask some of them that do they actually g for training before you were employed, I think the police IG need to know the kind of people the force should be engaged, I think the IG need to call them to other, because they are tarnishing the image of Nigeria to our foreign visitors. Please let the police boss look into this unholy brutalization of our member. We also met with the victim of that brutalization by the men of the Nigeria police force, Area K command led by one Moses.
In his reaction Mr. Paul who spoke to us through pains from the injuries he sustained while he was been arrested and in the police station said he sold a set of bed to one Mrs. ogunfowokan who is a neighour too for 300,000. He said the woman told him clearly that she did not have the money at that time but within a week she will meet up with the payment, and because she has never requested for such, out of trust he gave the woman the bed, after a month the woman paid 150,000 and since then she pay in pieces, sometime 5, 10 thousand naira, three years later she still has 65,000 balance to pay, on that 19th of may, I saw this woman and asked her about my money, she turn everything to quarrel and before you know it, police from Area K storm my store, they just asked? are you chukwuka and I said yes, that was all before I could say anything about eight armed men bounce on me, beat me mercilessly drag me to their car without any explanation, getting to the station they said I should write a statement that I was dragging and fighting them to resist arrest, I was kept behind bar for over 72 hour, they beat me at interval ,they even gave me one tea, initially I resisted but because the beaten was too severe I took the tea, I have not gotten myself, my stomach is paining me because I don’t know what they use in preparing the tea, please Nigerians help me IG police help me your men want to kill me, they release me on Sunday since Thursday. My children were fatherless for three days, my wife too was a widow for three day. On his wife, he said she did not know why the police was after her husband life, she said she was strip naked by the men of the police force.
In our attempt to get eye witness account we met with 5 people who will not want their name mentioned, they said the police were wrong on how they went about handling the case, they said Paul was not at fault because he is a business man who sold his market and the woman refuses to pay him instead for her to beg, she claimed she know the police and she will use then to frustrate the man, this paper is determined to follow this case to a logical conclusion, so we will continue to update you our readers as event unfold, whatever will be the outcome of the whole story time will tell.
