Oyogist has learned that an Independence day Protester who was among those arrested by military officials have Narrated his near death experience.
One of the protesters, Ibrahim Kadiri who was among those arrested in Abuja on Friday for protesting against insecurity and the anti-people policies of the President Muhammadu Buhari regime has narrated how he was tortured and dehumanised by soldiers.
Female police officer, ASP Altine Daniel, arrived the protest venue in a white Hilux vehicle, when the protesters were dispersed with teargas.
Accordingg to Ibrahim, one of the ‘torture squad’ members seized his mobile phone, removed the SIM card in it, and flung the phone into the drainage.
He said, “The police arrested me and handed me over to the soldiers. When we got to a location around Transcorp Hilton, they asked me all manner of questions. They asked how much were we paid to protest. Who sent us?”
They now asked me to lie down inside dirty drainage water and said I should be searching for fish. They beat me to the point that I didn’t know that I could ever survive it.
“As I am talking to you now, I cannot walk because of the pain. The soldiers are the ‘torture squad’ because they are the ones who dehumanised me.
“At the time of filing this report, the young activist was still in harrowing pain and could not walk.
