A lawyer was battered by policemen in Delta state allegedly because he stood up for his client who was arrested by the EFCC.
Mr Bernard Oyabevwe, a lawyer who belongs to the Warri branch of the Nigeria Bar Association, was allegedly beaten to a pulp by policemen attached to a police station in the ‘A’ Division of the Delta State Police Command in Warri.
Mr Oyabevwe was said to have visited the division to defend his client who was arrested by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

It was reported that on Sunday, Oyabevwe visited the police station attached to the division, which is directly adjacent the state magistrate court. While there, police brutalized him so much, leaving him with injured eyes.

It was learnt that trouble started when Oyabevwe found out that his client and his wife had been forcefully arrested by the EFCC officials from Magistrate Court II and taken to the division. The lawyer was said to have gone to the division to ascertain why his clients were arrested.
While there, a source told Southern City News that policemen at the station threatened to kill the lawyer and whoever dared to intervene. The source, who spoke on condition of annonymity, said one of the policemen pushed the lawyer against the EFCC vehicle that was conveying his client and his wife to an unknown destination. Other policemen were alleged to have held Oyabevwe and beat him to the point that he could no longer talk. The assault was said to have been carried out by over ten policemen and they are alleged to have used their guns to hit the victim’s eyes. “He started bleeding and coughing out blood until some court officials from both the high and magistrate’s courts intervened and insisted that he should be rushed immediately for medical treatment,” the source said.

Oyabevwe, who confirmed the attack on him, accused the Divisional Police Officer of the station, Mr Kenneth Zuokumor, a Chief Superintendent, of Police, of being behind the attack, saying that he lost mobile set and N50,000 cash in his pocket.

“The Marriage Crashed After 4 Months, Then Came Alive Again” — Veteran Filmmaker, Ugezu J. Ugezu Narrates Now Negligence Is The Cause Of Many Big Problems Holding So Many People

Published

He wrote: “Since her marriage crashed after just four months, this very decent lady has been trying to understand what happened.

She went into that marriage determined to make it. She was prepared to be a wife just like her mother. In that four months, she was spectacularly wonderful, but still, the marriage crashed.

She was devastated. There was nothing she had not done to reconcile with her man and nothing worked. He flares up once he sees her and some pastors have told her that the man she married belonged to a cult, and that he will kill her if she goes back. Another told her that she should thank her God that it ended.

But this lady refused to give up on her man. She knew him very well and was convinced he was not into all those demonic things.

Finally, a benevolent dibia afa, out of pity, meets her in a gas station and tells her what happened. [You know one of those seers who will see you and start saying things. She almost dismissed the man and was about driving out when the seer hit the melting point…. your marriage can still work if you locate Nwanyi Ukwa and pay the money.

She is curious…. who is Nwanyi Ukwa? What money do you speak of? Now the coast was cleared for an elaborate explanation.

Unknown to this innocent lady, the woman (Nwanyi Ukwa) who the husband engaged to cook special meal for his close friends, a night before their elaborate marriage, was not paid her money in full. She tried to collect her money and the man refused to pay. That woman it was who went back to their village in Okpuno Agu and laid the curse…. As you have refused to pay me my money, this your marriage will not last.

This lady, still determined to have her marriage work, located the woman and paid the money. Like magic, the unexplainable trouble that ended the marriage has evaporated and husband and wife have reconciled.

So many big problems holding many people were caused by stvpid negligence. Learn to ask questions.”
