Soldiers that collect N20,000 To Pass Drivers Beaten By Policemen for Not Wearing Face Mask



There was a pandemonium on Saturday in Benin City, Edo State, when a combined team of police and Nigerian security and civil protection officers beat a soldier for failing to wear facial mask. The incident occurred on Saturday afternoon, on Lagos Street, just 24 hours after the state government closed the street to all commercial activities due to the alleged refusal of traders and residents of the Street to comply with the guidelines to participate in the ongoing screening and testing exercise for Coronavirus, as part of efforts to contain the pandemic. It was established that the problems started when an unidentified soldier on the street was asked to put on his mask. An eyewitness who refused to mention his name said that the soldier who wore khaki military shorts had a handkerchief on his neck and that his wife had not put on her mask properly. "On entering Lagos Street, the soldier and his wife were asked to wear their face masks by the police on duty. The soldier brought his identity card to identify himself, but the police refused the card. identity as false. "The soldier became furious when a police officer pushed his wife with a gun to force her to wear the face mask. "Following the argument, the police descended on the soldier and injured his head with the butt of their weapon," he said. Traders and passers-by were forced to run in different directions, as Nigerian army men who later stormed the area reportedly shot several times in the air to scare police and NCDC officers. The rapid intervention of Nigerian army officers and the state police command eased the situation. The rival parties were then taken to the nearby Oba Market police division to resolve the problem. State Police Command spokesperson DSP Chidi Nwabuzor could not be reached on his mobile for comment.
