Nigeria: police beat truck driver to death

A 40-year-old truck driver was brutalized to death by policemen while returning from work with his brother in the Obio Local Government Area of Rivers State in Nigeria as family demand for justice.

“Our truck was parked near Reliable Farm where they work, saying the cops literally stripped them in the name of searching even when nothing incriminating was found on them.” the brother narrated.

We were both beaten until my brother collapsed.

“I rushed my brother to a nearby hospital but when we got there, the doctor checked him and told me that my brother gave up the ghost,” he added.

“I want justice for my brother. Let the policemen that killed my brother be arrested and charged to court so that his spirit can rest. My brother cannot die like that,” he added.

The matter was reported to the police in Elele who now transferred it to the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigating Department of the state command.
