While passing through Akure to another state on a mission, some officers of the @PoliceNG who were allegedly identified as IGP SQUAD decided to arrest innocent people on the road. They raided with an 18-seater grey colored bus with private number plate.

These IGP SQUAD of the @PoliceNG picked up Emmanuel while he was about to board a taxi on Thursday, Oct 9, 2019 in Akure.

The IGP SQUAD then took Emmanuel and others they had picked up to the SACS Office close to FUTA Northgate, but the SACS Office rejected them.

He hit my car, beat me to stupor, shot at me but missed, vandalised my car, arrested me & left with car key.

Yesterday night (October 5, 2019) around 8:30pm, I was driving alongside a colleague into Calabar from Ogoja.

We both work for a Pharmaceutical company & we're returning from official duties to supply drugs to a hospital with urgent need. 

As we approached 8miles in Calabar, I was driving slowly on the lane close to culvert, I had almost overtook a black fully tinted Toyota Camry (2010-muscle), when I noticed that he was swerving towards me.
So I had to press my horn to draw his attention so as to avoid an accident

These youths struggle to get educated, they struggle to get jobs and make a living in a tough world only to get killed by some unscrupulous elements in police uniform.

Yes, some of them may be involved in crime and other vices but this isn't enough justification to murder them
While growing up, I hardly saw policemen with guns, they carried batons. We used to call them 'kondo olopa' up until recently when it became a norm for all policemen to dangle assault rifles in our faces and shoot innocent youths.
