According to the victim identified as Alex, he was driving along the Eket-Ibeno road when a police team stopped him and requested for a bribe after checking all his papers and they were in order.

Alex narrated thus:

"I was driving along the Eket-Ibeno road when the police officers stopped me. They asked for my car particulars which I handed over to one of them. After checking the particulars and realising that all the particulars were intact, the officer told me: 'you suppose know what to do nah!'

When I insisted that he should return my car particulars, the officer out of annoyance butted my head with the butt of his gun. When he saw the blood gushing out of my head, the officers jumped into their patrol vehicle and drove away."
