Men of the Kwara State Police Command have been accused of dumping a student in front of his hostel after he became unconscious in their custody.
In a video shared on social media, the victim, who is currently hospitalized and said to be an international student, narrated what transpired.
He said he and his friends were apprehended by the policemen who ordered them to enter their police van.
The police recognized one of them and asked him to go, while the remaining two were told to enter their vehicle.
The officers then asked for their phones which they willingly surrendered. When they didn’t find anything incriminating, the officers turned to his friend and asked why he’s not into internet fraud a.k.a ‘Yahoo Yahoo’.
The victim said he told his friend not to respond to the question and this infuriated the officers who in turn started beating him.
He said they drove them to the station, collected their phones and locked them in a cell.
He said he lost consciousness inside the cell and out of fear, the police took him back to his hostel and dumped him there.
The caretaker, who claimed to have witnessed the incident, said the officers came in a blue van and dropped the victim.
The PRO of the state police command, SP Okasanmi Ajayi, while reacting to the allegations, said,
“This allegation would be thoroughly investigated, it is very unprofessional if it truly happened the way the story was painted. I can assure you guys the needful would be done. Dm me the name and address of the hostel and hospital please.”
