The Nigeria Police is once more in the front burner for all the wrong reasons as one of its officers has been indicted in a case of domestic violence.
Police officer accused of brutality by girlfriend
A police officer is in trouble for brutally assaulting the mother of his child.
According to a mail sent in by a Human Rights Axctivist, the victim, a young lady who has been living with the officer named Sgt. Seyi Mathew Osuntokun, attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), of the Rivers State Police Command, was savagely attacked by the officer despite the fact that she has an 11-month old baby for him.
Read the mail here:
"Today at my office, I met a woman in very grievous condition with a baby of about 11-months and seriously ill with hernia, strapped to her back. This young lady is about 29yrs old. She was cohabiting with one Sgt. Seyi Mathew Osuntokun with the Nigeria Police Force Number 212822.
Sgt. Osuntokun believes he has all power and he can never be brought to book for the grievous damage he has done to a girl that bore him a son he has refused to take responsibility.
Upon getting home from her shop on Saturday, 21st November, 2015, he handcuffed her to the burglary in their apartment, fired two shots from his personal pump action gun (attached are pictures of the cartridges), and with the baby still strapped to her back, he flogged and cut her with a cutlass.
She was handcuffed throughout the night till around 8am when she was able to escape with the handcuff still attached to the fan he later handcuffed her to when he wanted her to feed the child while he went out to eat.
Sgt Osuntokun is a disgrace to the Nigerian Police Force which is a reputable organization and whose image has been seriously battered by blood sucking policemen like him.
He has further threatened to kill her and the baby with her. The woman reported to Isiokpo Police Station, Ikwerre LGA, Rivers State, yet the beast is still roaming about freely without any action being taken.
If nothing is being done to police officers like him that put the laws in their hands then I believe there is no hope for common masses like us."
