Friday Olokor Of The Punch Newspaper Brutalized By Police, DSS Operatives by okrote4real: 3:02pm On Jun 10
"We were invited to cover a panel of discussion at the ongoing African Council of Women Conference with the theme: Factors and driver of Gender-Based Violence in Nigeria, organised by the DRPC, under the Ford Foundation.

"I drove to the venue, M & M Events Centre, Abuja, close to NICON Luxury in Central Business District. After introducing myself, the Mopol stopped me at the gate and said I should get entrance tag. I told him I can only get the tag from the people who invited me. Still, he refused. I had to call Patience Ihejirika of Leadership Newspapers who came, gave me my tag.

"Yet, the police officer was complaining that we journalists are the problem of Nigeria. I turned and asked him why do security agencies hate journalists? He started abusing me and said if not he was on uniform, he would have taught me a big lesson. Seeing him, you could tell he's frustrated.

"He said I wasn't going in. It was during this time that the DSS operatives pounded me, tore my shirts. One of them tried severally to clear me, but I was jumping. They were joined by police officers. They said I should sit down, I stood up. I was handcuffed! They seized the phone belonging to Patience Ihejirika, deleted the videos and photos of the incident, while one of the police officers threatened to beat her up.

"I called a senior officer in DSS who happened to be my friend right from school. Even when he tried to speak with them, they refused. 'Tell him we're not talking with him. Olokor, I'm from Delta, when we get home, we discuss man to man', one of them said. One wonders whether there's no discipline in the DSS.

"An Assistant Director called to plead with a promise that they would been summoned to write a report of what happened. I've reported the matter to my bosses."

Lawlessness everywhere in Nigeria. I am not surprise at all. We have not witnessed such state of lawlessness in this country before.

shocked





I do not believe this


They say there are always 3 sides to a story.
My side
His and
The truth
The man just told us his own story, let's wait for police and DSS side of the story from there we will know the truth.

But the man am seeing in the picture doesn't look beating and his clothes are not torn as reported by the journalist. By the way I wonder how DSS junior staffs will refused to answer the call of their superior, that is impossible.


Anyway what do I even know, punch reporter was punched by police and DSS

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
No one achieves anything great by prayer alone. You must play your part, while God plays His part.

God has heard our prayer for our Nigeria. It's time for positive action.

JUNE 12 Rallies for good governance.

Come one, come all!

ok. He wants everyone to believe that out of all journalist on that occasion, he was Brutalized for just been a journalist by both Police and DSS?
An experienced journalist went to a government sponsored program expecting to gate crash without an official identification or security TAG?
We need to hear the other side of the story
