The Nigeria Police Force has said it has begun investigating power-drunk policemen who tortured a University of Lagos student, John Akinwale, till he went into a coma in the Mosafejo, Oshodi area of Lagos State.
The NPF Police Complaint Response Unit, Abuja, disclosed this via its Twitter handle on Tuesday.
Recall it was reported that Akinwale was arrested and brutalised on Monday, around 2pm, after he bought fuel at a filling station and was sighted by policemen attached to the Mosafejo division.
It has been reported that the operatives demanded N50,000 for bail from the UNILAG student, who is also an activist, after dragging him to a police station.
In response to the allegations, the NPF CRU said, “Your complaint is hereby acknowledged and investigation has been initiated.”
