Three men have been left in serious pain after police officers tortured and locked them up for demanding for their parents’ entitlements.
The Principal Counsel and Head at Inibehe Effiong Chambers, Inibehe Effiong has raised alarm over the regrettable manner the Nigerian police has continued to allegedly breach the rights of its citizens.
The lawyer has revealed how men of the Nigerian police allegedly arrested and tortured some men for demanding for their parents’ entitlements.
He wrote: “The three arrested, detained and arraigned next-of-kin of late primary school teachers in Akwa Ibom State 1991-date after their released yesterday following the perfection of their bail conditions. They are Benjamin Benson, Eno Kenneth and Utibe Sunday.
“One of them, Eno Kenneth (far left) has informed me that he is NOT seeing clearly with his right eye owing to severe torture by men of the Nigeria Police Force, Akwa Ibom State Command. As you can see from the photos their hairs were shaved, against their wish.
“They were harassed, tortured, intimidated, teargased and treated like common criminals by agents of the State for daring to demand the payment of their late parents’ entitlements from Governor Udom Emmanuel and the Akwa Ibom State Government.
“This impunity will not go unchallenged.”
