www.odogwublog.com reports that Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obimma (Ebube Muonso) of the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministries, Uke is unhappy that policemen battered a 31-year old trader, Tochukwu Emelahi who has been hospitalized following multiple injuries he received when some policemen attached to Awada Police Division, Obosi, Anambra State allegedly brutalized him for daring to interfere while they  maltreated   a bus driver.
Residents of N0 1 Chizon Street, Awada where the victim resided told journalists that trouble started for Tochukwu during the last Saturday environmental cleanup exercise when some patrol teams from the Division allegedly engaged in mass arrests and extortion  of commuters for violating the sanitation rule.
The Source said most of the citizens arrested and extorted by the police were worshipers returning from the Night Vigil organized by popular Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obimma (Ebube Muonso) of the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministries, Uke to end the Ministry’s 33 days prayer match.
The vigil lasted till around 7am that Saturday coupled with the heavy traffic gridlock that followed after dismissal going by the estimated more than 1, 500,000 worshipers that attended the vigil.
In the course of arresting people that morning, the police allegedly descended on a bus driver, Nnaemeka Francis with Registration number HAL 347 YG and teargassed him for refusing to cooperate when Tochukwu who was standing nearby watching the whole scenario interjected asking the police whether they want to kill the man.
“My offence was that I felt pity on the driver they have poured tear gas in his eyes and I shouted “do you want to kill him”. They immediately swooped on me asking me what was my business in what they were doing. They hit me with gun butts, kicking and pummeling me like a thief being attacked by a mob. They broke my head, tore my clothes and stripped me naked as blood was gushing out” Tochukwu  said.
Tochukwu said the police team that manhandled him were many but he was able to identify some of them which included Udeme Effiong, Olocbon Sunday and Stanley Oyinna.
He called on the Police authorities to ensure that those who abused him will not go scot free.
When the reporter contacted the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Awada Police Station, CSP Babalola Adewuyi for comments he said the officers have briefed him that the man in question threw pure water sachet at the police when they were performing their lawful duties but he has ordered for proper investigation over the incident.
Meanwhile, the recorded video of the police brutality has since gone viral on the social media platform.
