A team of Delta State police officers led by Corporal Gospower has seriously brutalized a 27-year-old man, Kelvin Ilome, after they allegedly broke into his house with no search warrant.
According to Advocate Harrison Gwamnishu, the bribe-seeking police officers were on unofficial duty breaking into people’s home to harrass them.
“Kelvin wasn’t spared. He had demanded for a search warrant from these officers but was assaulted instead.These officers later took him to Divisional Police Headquarters Abraka where Corporal Godspower hit the victim on his head with a baton which in turn caused severe injuries on the head.
The officer is currently detained as ordered by the DPO CSP Aliyu Shaba. We want police brutality to end in Nigeria and we hope this officer is used as a scape goat to serve as a deterrent to others “ He said.
