A member of the House of Representatives, Obinna Chidoka who represents Idemili North and South Federal Constituency, took to his Twitter handle to recount the faceoff he had with police officers who he ran into allegedly brutalizing a man for splashing water on their driver.
Obinna in a series of tweets said he was driving along the Owerri-Obosi road when he encountered the ”unprofessional members of the Nigerian police force brutalizing a civilian and a member of his constituency.”
Obinna claims the police officers attacked him when he attempted to stop them from further brutalizing the civilian.
His account of the incident comes amidst growing public outcry for the Federal government to end police brutality and SARS brutality in the country.
His tweets read:
