His 'crime'; he hired a houseboy who kept fake dollars in his apartment.

Pastor Ejimozor Williams of Gracious and Mercy Prophetic International Church, Egbeda, Lagos State went blind after he was tortured by operatives of the Department of State Services in Lagos.

The house of the 46-year-old in the Ayobo area was invaded by the security officials after his houseboy, identified simply as Chukwujekwu, defrauded some residents using fake dollars.

Chukwujekwu was said to have fled before the officials ransacked Ejimozor’s home and found some of the counterfeit currency.

Ejimozor was reportedly bundled into a DSS operational van, where he was subjected to different forms of torture.

When he sought to know the identities of the men, one of the officials allegedly hit his head with the butt of a gun.

A few weeks later, he was said to have become blind.
