CAMPUS SIGNAL | Horror in MAPOLY as Police Beat Student to Coma
The Ogun Chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has given the Nigeria Police Force a 48-hour ultimatum to arrest and prosecute two police officers who allegedly brutalized Taiwo Peter, a student studying at the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic in Abeokuta.
According to reports obtained by CAMPUS SIGNAL, the victim was beaten to coma by two police officers attached to Adigbe station in Abeokuta last week Thursday after they chased him into his room.
In a statement issued on Wednesday and signed by the NANS/JCC Chairman in the state, Comrade Dotun Opaleye, a.k.a. Zamora, it was revealed that Peter is now suffering from a horrific psychological trauma, capable of destroying his psychological balance.
“How can a human being working in a sane society after brutalizing a young boy, who is enough to be his son. What can we say about a policeman who is being paid by the tax payer’s money to protect lives and properties of the citizenry but suddenly turned from a protector of the oppressed to a torturer and ‘Near Executor’?
“As we write this petition, the lad, Taiwo Peter cannot speak intelligently anymore as we suspect that the vicious blows to his head might have reconfigured the brains operation. He cannot ear, sit, stand, sleep or think properly, he has suffered a horrific psychological trauma capable of destroying his psychological balance,” the statement read.
The two officers identified as CPL Ajayi Samueland ASP Emmanuel Ogundaisi have vanished into thin air.
