Policemen Handcuff Passenger To Vehicle As Driver Escapes
The policemen, who were in a van, mounted a checkpoint and to allegedly extort money from commercial bus drivers.
However, one driver who was stopped reportedly refused to pay. He was ordered to park off the road.
One of the passengers was said to have alighted to ease himself.
The driver, on discovering that the attention of the policemen had shifted to another vehicle, quickly drove off, abandoning the man that went to urinate.
A monarch, the Owa Tapa of Itapa Ijesha, Dr Olapade Agoro, whose university’s site was around the area, said the abandoned passenger was picked up by the policemen and handcuffed to the patrol van.
He explained that the victim was handcuffed to the van for over two hours during which he soiled himself, as his cry for mercy fell on deaf ears.
He said he was angry at the maltreatment of the victim and he challenged the policemen.
Agoro said the cops subsequently released the passenger, who later came to his palace to appreciate the intervention.
The spokesperson for the state police command, SP Odoro Folashade, said she could not react to the incident because the case had not been reported to any police station.
