#EndSARS: Young Man Severely Beaten By Police Over Traditional Book Found In Bag


In another chilling example of police brutality, a young man was severely beaten in Ogun state by police over alleged fetish items found in his bag.

An Instagram user @abeyjunior  explained the incident saying that the police stopped their bus and while going through people’s belongings, they found a traditional account in the young man’s bag. Apparently, the young man is the son of a herbalist and on the strength of this alone, the police proceeded to beat him up and arrest him.

Read his account below;

“Since the beginning of the #endsars campaign started, I have not had it in mind of joining but today I think all police officers in Nigeria should be scrap. Few minutes after we left Ore to Ijebu Ode, these illiterates called Police stopped us and asked for proper checking which I think its normal .

Along the line, that young boy that was dished several slap was attacked by one of the officers, all because they found traditional account from his bag. Pls is it a crime to be herbalist’s son? Before we knew it, the young boy was handcuffed all because of what was written inside the book.

I can tell you that a criminal with exhibit can never move with public bus cause this officers only stopped public vehicles. I can’t teach you your job but instant judgement is what I am against, beating people like robbers when investigation has not properly verified. if you never collect salaryna we be government that you should attact instead of protecting the masses? You know where you can trace criminals to, not abusing young fellows. Ire oooo #endsars”
