DPO Beats, Strips Sisters Naked, Arrests Mother In Delta

Ibok who is the DPO of the police division was said to have arrested the duo and their widowed mother, Mrs. Lucy Okoro, afterwards.

According to reports, one of their tenants, Andrew Obas, had invited the police to their home.

She said he (Obas) was owing her family three months rent and they had given him until the fourth month after which his failure to pay, forced them to issue him quit notice.

Mercy recounted in Pidgin;

We gave him four months which elapsed this January, but he refused to pay. We asked him to pack out, instead, he brought armed Policemen.

They shot sporadically, came to our house and carried my sister, dragging her on the floor and kicking her. I held the Policeman asking him to let my sister go. But the Policeman (DPO) stripped me naked. He pulled the wrapper from my neck, dragged me on the floor and kicked my buttocks.

They bundled my sister and I into their patrol van and took us to the Police Station. I never knew it was the DPO at first. He asked if we were the people causing ‘wahala’? So I asked my mother to join us in the cell. That was when he slapped me until I fell on the ground and fainted

The Policewoman at the counter sprayed teargas into my eyes. I thought I was already blind. At night, he (DPO) and some men came and rained abuses on me.

Mercy further appealed to the Nigerian government, human rights organization, as well as the international community to take up the matter and ensure “justice” is served.

When contacted, the Ekpan Divisional Police Officer, SP Ibok Asanenyi denied the allegations levelled against him saying, “It is not true.”

Adding that he was not around when the incident occurred, let alone stripping the girl naked.

On his part, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hafiz Inuwa said, the allegation was a “blatant lie”.

Inuwa said;

As I am speaking with you, this is the second time a journalist is calling me. He wanted to reach me because of what one human rights person alleged.

But when he could not get me, he just made his enquiry and discovered that it is not even true because the DPO even told him that he was not there at the station when the matter was reported.

Some of these things, what you need to do is that you first contact the person that the allegation was made against. As I am talking to you now, we did not record anything like this
