'I was almost killed by police officers yesterday'- LIB reader shares story

A LIB reader shares an encounter  she and her family had with police. Read below...
 I was on my way home with my two sisters when we were stopped at a police check point. Two police officers stopped us, seeing my sisters fiancee driving us, he thought we were prostitutes and asked what we were doing at that time of the night (it was 11.15pm). He asked for the drivers license and was given. He started asking silly questions and the next thing the other police officer will say is,
"I can kill all of you in this car and nothing will happen because there is no witness." We the girls in the car knowing our right tried to get a picture taken, at least to send to someone so as to know what really happened but police officer threw the phone away and hit one of my sisters. I want you to please post this news, because if we were killed, the police officers will come up with a ridiculous story and what really happened would have been forgotten. It happened at century checkpoint close to the police station there. The only reason we made it out was because we knew our right. Thank you.
I've published numbers you can call to report policemen who you feel mistreated you (see here). Please get their names and use those numbers ...

You and your sister fiancé act silly (Claiming your right in front of a brutal police officer is a silly act) never ever in your life argue with a policeman in the bush or at night, they are terrible and Worst than robber.

So sorry to hear that. Would have given you the number of a journalist, Femi Owolabi who had an incident with the police and decided to take it up. But the guy is a major sell out.

Just thank God you are alive. And never argue with a police man or women. They are all unstable. If my child says he/she want to join the police na to kill am be that.

Why will you try to take a picture of him at his front? Isn't that foolish enough? All the same the police was wrong...should be sanctioned.

Queen Kunta said...

Linda forget that number shit. You think that would work? U won't understand how useless, reckless and foolish some of these policemen are. No offense to my uncle and friend in the force.

Bonita Bislam said...

Some of these policemen aren't normal I swear.Most of em are depressed scumbags who are waiting to unleash their aggression on innocent Nigerians

hrm paul ojeih said...

How can the police be our friends when all they do is kill innocent Nigerians.They kip talking tough yet when they see armed robbers they disappear. trigger happy fool. when the government wanted to send them to Bornu state they went of strike useless animals. the day we get guns legalized in this country a police shoots my family or relation the next thing to do is to open fire at any police man then the equation will be balanced.I dont like the police for nothing. And they all die such miserable death

Pls expantiate and give better details of the story so people can use it and even prosecute the policeman. If you are truly prostitutes we won't condemn you. Just state a word by word account of what happened. E.g you didn't tell us how you were eventually set free. Did u beg or threaten. You only said "we know our right".
What actually ensued?

I disagree with u madam, d only reason u made it out was God's grace. It was not because u knew ur rights. A lot of people who know their rights r dead and cold.

Some Nigerians are so funny . You want to snap a policeman with rifle at crime or abuse scene. Please apply wisdom next time bcos you so lucky not to have met a trigger happy policeman even in US that we all claimed that is so advance , they still waste people Derek

If the police thought u were prostitutes, it may be from the way u dress and talk. People will address u according to the way u dress. Women, dress well to avoid embarrassment.

Remove that sir from your name cos you are fool, who doesn't know Nigeria Police and stupid excuses to extort money and kill people

dami llionaire said...

U made it out by God's grace and not by knowing ur right....

doris metuh said...

This story is really not clear. What are you doing with ladies at that time of the night? What and how were they dressed and also thier attitude? We just come here and say all manner of rubbish about police, we know they are not perfect but you as a citizen how do you respond to them. Well, I feel by that time, with 2 skimpy dressed lousy ladies and just you as the man, is quiet suspicious to me . That my take on that. Reporting to any human right what ever , my guy, you don't really have a good case. Linda tell them to take note.

Anonymous said...

It is not just making numbers available IG. What everybody has now is a smart phone publicly announce that every citizen has a right to record their encounter with police men and see policing work.

Chidinma Echezonachukwu said...

The only reason u made it was d grace of God & not ur stupid right. So insane of u 2 make a picture of dem in d course of a heated argument @ such ungodly hour. U should hav kept ur mouth shut and allow ur sister fiance answer to their questions.

In as much as I don't support unruly officers in d police force & want dem flushed out. Would hav considered u wise if u had done a voice recording of d argument, had facial recognition & service number of 1 officer involved. By now u'll hav a case & fishing dem out will b easy since it all happened @ century check point near a police station.

Receive sense!!!

ROYAL PRIESTHOOD said...

Aha!

Display and utterance's frm our police officer's shows their level of unprofessionalism.

They should b sanction accordingly so dat they wil b sanity in our police force.

Publish their and the station's location on fb and twitter also

Amaka Ngenegbo said...

Its just that they don't usually wear uniforms whenever they are at checkpoints especially at night. But if they happen to be on their uniforms, be sure to get their names and the numbers on their shirt pocket. Then go make a report.

@ anonymous. Century checkpoint is in ago palace okota.nd d police are very useless there.

Anonymous said...

The greatest proof that police is a low grade profession in Nigeria is seen in the fact that their children never follow their profession because they know it is useless . You see doctors, lawyers, engineers, sand many noble professions where the child will follow the path of the parent and continue the parent's legacy.
But police children nowadays regardless of their age will never follow their parent work or even wish to follow it.

Go back to school. Where in the story reads that they were skimpily dressed? They can be coming from anywhere eg even hospital. What happened to fundamental human rights?

Is time Nigeria government have to stop those Awusa people who do know there job
