A HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST MOLESTED AND DETAINED FOR REFUSING TO PAY FOR BAIL:

A human rights activist, Kelvin Iyare was molested and detained by men of the Ekiadolor Police Divisional Headquarters today for refusal to pay for bail in securing the release of a suspect in detention.

The activist had gone to intervene in a case of involving two persons who had a fight and have decided to resolve same out of the police station. While the activist made the position of the duo known to the Investigative Police Officer he became furious because he had demanded for the sum of N40, 000 as bail of the suspect that was reported.

The insistence of bail is free from the human rights activist didn’t go well with the IPO who mobilized his other colleagues to unleash beating on him and using all manner of unprintable names on him and the group he belongs to.

It was reported while all these were going on, the Divisional Police Officer looked on. The activist who was been beaten mercilessly managed to make a distress call to his colleagues who came and were equally attacked in the presence of the DPO.

Videos and pictures obtained from the activist revealed him reeling in pains and anguish in front of suspects’ cell.

Edo Civil Society which the activist belongs to is yet to react to the ordeals of their members in the hands of the police as at the time of filing this report.
