Police Arrest Officer Who Beat FUTA Student

The Ondo State Police Command on Tuesday said
it had arrested one of its men, who allegedly beat
and injured a female student of the Federal
University of Technology, Akure.
Some students of the institution were said to
have had an encounter with some policemen
attached to the ‘A’ Division Police Station, Akure,
Ondo State capital, on Sunday night leading to
one of them being injured by a policeman.
The identities of the victim and that of the
policeman had not been revealed as of the time
of filing this report. Video of the encounter had
already gone viral on social media.
In the viral video, a young woman ( FUTA
student) was seen with one of her eyes bleeding
and she kept saying, “Look at my eyes.”
When contacted on the development, the Police
Public Relations Officer Mr Femi Joseph,
confirmed the incident and said the erring police
officer had been arrested and would face trial.
Joseph, who declined to reveal the identity of the
cop, however, explained that the matter involved
two students, who were on a motorcycle and
were drunk on Sunday night.
He said that the students refused to be checked
by the policemen, who were on patrol.
He said, “The students were stopped by the
policemen on patrol on Sunday night, and when
they were asked to open the bag they held, they
refused, that was what caused an argument
between them, leading to one of them to slightly
push the lady. But because the lady was drunk,
she fell down and got injured.
“In spite of that, as I am speaking with you now,
the policeman in question has been arrested and
will face trial today ( Tuesday). He would
definitely be punished. ”
The President of the FUTA Student Union
Government, Abraham Esedere, said he was at
the police headquarters over the matter and
promised to call back.
“I’m at the police headquarters, I will call you
back after I leave here,” he told our correspondent
on the telephone.
