Photos: Lawyer left for dead after alleged brutal beating by 5 soldiers in Delta State

One Sunny Ekwe, a lawyer based in Ovorie Ethiope East LGA of Delta State was allegedly beaten by 5 soldiers who left him to die after they fractured his spinal cord.

According to Omemimoro Maxwell Ogedegbe, who posted the photos on Facebook, the incident happened on the evening of March 11th


"Two of them arrested and still in the military custody of the 222 battalion Agarho Utor, Ughelli, delta state. On the 11th of March 2017 at about 7pm this lawyer went to visit a relative at the Okpara waterside when suddenly as he was about to leave a young boy demanded he should follow him to meet some other boys seated in a distance that was a bit dark.

"In the process of resisting the boy, the boy called the other four guys who descended on the lawyer and subjected him to the most crudest humiliation and brutality ever and only abandoned him to die in a close dried up drain. Because of the atrocities of the boys in the area no body in the community could intervene as they are young soldiers. The lawyer was rushed to the hospital at Isiokolo but referred to Orerokpe after he was revived.

"The police of Isiokolo made first failed attempt at arresting the boys but they resisted and the police chickened out claiming as military officers they must be dealt with by their command. It took the intervention of my humble self and a serving magistrate to prevail on the DPO who mobilised about 20 mobile police personel to the community and luckily the boys were at the verge of moving to their station and only two were apprehended as three had left before police arrival .

"They were arrested and formally handed over to the commanding officer of the 222 battalion where they have been in custody till date. They are persons who just returned from 9months military training. We salute the reawaken dogged Ness of the DPO and the forthright Ness of the commanding officer who have sent for the return of the fleeing officer. Truly they have realised this is a democracy where pen is mightier than the sword."

Please I need an assistant financially, surviving through the help of my aged mother who as well its managing. I love to start something even if its little so I can be living home at least so I don't die of loneliness, thinking,depression and hunger. I feel ashamed seeing others going out why I sit at home doing nothing. Even if its to learn a hand work I wouldn't mind. Please I need an assistant.

Five men join together to brutalize just one innocent man to the point of death? They are cowards, they should be sent to sambisa forest to go and practice their brutality on boko haram.
