Meanwhile, an artisan, Mr. Ndifreke Ibuotenang, 28, claimed that he was also brutalised on Thursday by the same group of policemen.
Ibuotenang said he was returning from where he went to drink palm wine around 9pm, when the same police team accosted him and beat him to a pulp.
Ibuotenang’s two eyes had been seriously affected.
He said he was released after the payment of N10,000 bail.
The state Police Commissioner, Mr. Murtala Mani, said the police had already commenced investigation into the two cases.
Mani explained that all the policemen that were on patrol from the station at the time were in detention at the police headquarters in the state.
He explained that the fact that a police officer was a prosecutor did not mean that he could not be assigned to other duties.
He said, “We have already started investigation into the matter. We have detained all the policemen involved.
“I interviewed the victims close to three hours yesterday (Monday). If the culprits are found wanting, they would be dismissed and prosecuted.”
