See Post Below. I was a victim of Police brutality and rascality today at Nnewi Anambra State. Because of the sit-at-home yesterday, we cancelled our return from Ozubulu back to Lagos. This morning, about few minutes to 6.am in the company of 3 of my friends we ran into a police check point. Without any forewarning, they started shooting into the air and ordered us to lie face down. They matched 2 of my friends on the head. The pointed their gun at us that we are IPOB members who killed their colleague and destroyed their station yesterday. It is only God who knows how the tension was doused. They looked through our vehicle and ordered us to rush and enter our vehicle and turn back or else they would shoot us all. There were a lot of ifs….To God be the glory, I am safely home.
