FRSC Official Allegedly Stabbed in the Eye by Soldiers Calls for Justice | Watch

A couple of days ago, an official of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Segun Enikuemehin, was allegedly stabbed in the eye by soldiers who were beating up a civilian.

Segun, on his way from work had gone to meet the soldiers to ask them what the person had done to warrant such brutalisation, and one of them said he wore military camouflage some weeks before that time and they had asked him to bring it to them. The soldier said the person refused, and they were just seeing him that day.

Observing that the soldiers would have beaten the person to death, the dragged him out of their hands and took him to the police station.

He said some policemen accompanied him to the scene after he reported the case at the Adekunle Police station at Ebute Metta. He added that the soldiers had already regrouped at a nearby beer parlour, numbering about 19, and that was when they pushed a policeman aside and beat him up mercilessly, stabbing him with an object in the eye.

Reports revealed that the damaged eye was reportedly picked from the ground and Segun was rushed down to the General Hospital.  Rejected upon arrival by that hospital, he was then taken to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).

Meanwhile, the soldiers, upon realizing what they had done, were said to have taken to their heels but were overtaken by residents and handed over to the police.

Segun is calling on the government and the FRSC authorities to intervene in the issue and ensure that justice is served.

His uncle, Ojatunwase Oluwajoba, had also said that the soldier who allegedly carried out the attack had been released to the military, and a military officer, who he identified as Captain Okolo had told him that until a soldier who was allegedly stabbed by the resident recovers, they will not look into Segun’s case.

    What is wrong with this country? A man is mercilessly beaten by those who swore to serve and protect us. Everyday I read stories about murder, rape, poverty, domestic violence, unemployment, armed robbery, ritual killings, kisnappings, oil bunkering, theft, fraud, police brutality, inter-tribal conflicts, religious unrest, bribery and corruption, gross injustice, hardship, the list goes on. Y was I born in this country? Our political leaders and security personnels are high-handed and exploitative, the masses are clueless and are too hungry and scared to demonstrate. What kind of country is this? Things are going from bad to worse and the people suffer in silence. I am stuck in this hell-hole called Nigeria. If I should have the slightest opportunity to leave this country, I’d jump on it without a second thought. I no mind make I go dey wash plates for America. This country don tire me. This man deserves justice. Tomorrow again, we are going to read another story of cruel violence. I am tired of suffering and I am tired of seeing peolpe suffer. Which kind country be this? Insult me and call me unpatriotic if u like; I don’t give two hoots. I am just tired of suffering without respite.

    Na wah o @nellyv, na Buhari cause this one again. You guys should quit this blasphemy already. A lot of evil and wicked things happened during Goodluck’s dispensation too. Kai please Nigerians should be calm, so we don’t make the journey that is meant to last for 40days take another 40years like it happened to the “Israelites”. Do you know that if power changes hands, we are going to start all over again? We should all be patient with this present govt please. Sincerely, I don’t belong to any of these parties but am just a Nigerian that has the best interest of my Nation at heart. Prayer is the key…

    @Nellyv Buhari is not the problem in this country. WE ALL ARE. We have all contributed one way or the other to this seeming lawless system of ours either by complacency or complicity. And God will not come down to fix the mess created over 56years for us. Like Israel HE did give us a way out of the wilderness after 40years (with democracy) but what have we done with it? Do we even understand just how powerful we are as a people? See how the residents united against the soilders to stand for what is right in this case, that is the attitude we need.
