The man was beaten up by the police officer
According to a The Nation report, a police sergeant identified as Nagbama Osakpamwan Eboigbe popularly knownas Smally has beaten up the lover of his estranged wife and locked him up in the booth of his car.
The wife’s lover identified as Ese Idehen was caught by the suspected thugs hired by Smally at a drinking bar along Muritala Mohammed Way in Benin City.A video that has gone viral showed Esebeing beaten up, his close torn and forced into the booth of a car.
Another video showed him confessing to sleeping with Smally’s wife only once before he knew she was a marriedwoman.Ese in the video which showed bruises on his face said the lady was introduced to him by one Sandra.
However, estranged wife of Smally in an online video said their marriages was over for the past nine months.She was silent on the affairs with Ese and promised to make it known in another video.
However, Counsel to Ese, Barrister Jefferson Uwughoren, has petitioned the State Commissioner of Police, Haliru Gwandu, that his client was abducted and forced to confess to things he didn’t do.
Jefferson described the action of Smally as brazen impunity by lawless policeman.
According to him,“The marriage fell apart in the last nine months. The guy procured services of thugs to adopt and take him to a place at night.
“We have written a petition to the policeto investigate the criminal act. The woman had come out to deny that the boy did not sleep with her. They forced the boy to admit what he did not do.
“His abductors stole his money and other personal items and later dumped him still blindfolded at about 11pm closed to Ebenezer Primary School, Ihama Road, GRA , Benin City.
“This unacceptable and brazen abuse of power by Mr Eboigbe aka Smally is very unfortunate and we shall ensure,within the limits of the Law , that he is brought to book and made to answer for his illegal actions. It’s a promise.”
