Do Edo state police officers have the right to brutalize people?(video)

EagleHeadline | Jun. 19, 2017

Some men of the Nigeria police force in Edo state have been filmed as they dehumanised an unidentified man on Sunday, May 14.

The officers cuffed the man to the door of their moving van and dragged him along the road as they drove in Sopkonba junction, Benin City.

The story was discovered after a Facebook user, Irabor Franklyn, shared the story on his page. According to Franklyn, the officers brutalised him and his friends after they tried to plead with them to leave the man alone.

He wrote: “I AND SO MANY OTHERS WERE BRUTALISED BY MEN OF NIGERIA POLICE FORCE ESIGE DIVISION. JUST BECAUSE WE PLEADED WITH THEM NOT TO DRAG A YOUNG MAN CHAINED TO THE BACK OF THEIR HILUX VAN ALONG THE ROAD. THIS HAPPENED ON MORNING SUNDAY MAY 15TH 2017 BETWEEN 1ST EAST CIRCULAR ROAD AND SOPKONBA ROAD JUNCTION, BENIN CITY. # PLEASE I NEED JUSTICE #.”

No matter what a civilian does, should police officers have the power to treat people with injustice? Comment to tell us your opinion!

You should see the pictures of citizens of Uganda being tortured by the police. You are left lame or incapacitated if you don't die.
