Corps Member Loses An Eye To Police Brutality by nas4q(m): 9:15pm On Dec 13, 2012
Gbenga Ariyibi Ado Ekiti
A National Youth Service
Corp (NYSC) member
serving in Ekiti State,
Anthony Ebuka
Onuagbara has lost one of his eyes to police
brutality, following an
injury he sustained when
he was allegedly beaten
by some police in Ado
Ekiti recently Anthony 26, who hails
from Ezeama-Amichi ,
Nnewi South Local
Government Area of
Anambra State, lost his
right eye to police brutality,after he was
beaten by the police for
an offence he did not
commit in August this
year The Corp member who is
currently serving at the
Bursar’s office in Ekiti
State University has
appealed to Ekiti State
police command to investigate the matter
with a view of identifying
the cop that caused
damage on his eye. Narrating the
circumstances that led to
his ordeal, Anthony
recounted that sometimes
in August that a
commercial sex worker had reported that one of
his neighbour had abused
her sexually. The complaint, according
to him, led a team of
policemen from the
Special Anti-robbery
Squad to his house at
Bode Ayeni area of Adebayo who beat the
occupant? According to the
Corpmember, his
colleague, Michael had
picked the lady at about
6pm on August 12, 2012
at Fajuyi Area of Ado Ekiti to spend the night with
him with the agreement
to pay her N3,000 the
second day He further recounted
that disagreement
ensued immediately
Michael took the lady
home at about 8pm on
that day because Michael confessed that he could
only offer the lady
N2,000 .He said Michael’s
action infuriated the lady
and this forced her to
the SARS Operatives and reported the case to
them by lying that he
was abused sexually, even
when no sex took place
between them. The ‘youth corper’
further explained that
shortly after the lady
left, some SARS
operatives bombarded the
premises at about 11pm, broke their doors and
unleashed beatings on
the occupants. Presently, Anthony is
fast losing his sight ,
having undergone Eye
surgery at the Ekiti State
Teaching Hospital, the bill
he personally sponsored without any help from the
police authority. When contacted, the
police image maker in the
state, Mr Victor Babayemi
told newsmen that the
affected youth corper
had actually wrote a petition to the state
police commissioner over
the incident. The PPRO said the matter
was under investigation,
assuring that the police
would swung into action
as soon as the
investigation is completed.

My fear is this; is it until d poor guy completed his youth service that d investigation would be completed. By then the injured area might hav healed and the case swept under d carpet. It's still possible that he truly assaulted the LovePeddler or they assaulted each other. What's your take on this?
