    Published By:

    A resident of Lagos State identified as Fatai Sowunmi, alleged that men of the Force Intelligence Bureau Special Tactical Squad, Abuja, invaded his house, beat them up and stole $5,000 from him, while they withdrew N1.3 million from his brother’s account at Oseyintola Street, Ifako-Ijaiye, Agege, Lagos State.

    Fatai, who spoke to PUNCH  on Wednesday, said, “Last week Friday, around 8 am, some policemen broke into my house and accused me of having guns and being a kidnapper. They took my phone, beat me up and ransacked my house. They took $5,000 from my wardrobe.

    “I asked them for a warrant of arrest and they started beating me again; they said who gave me the temerity to talk to them.

    “My younger brother, Ibrahim, was beaten up as well. They handcuffed us and took us to the Command Road Police Station, but they did not take us inside. I am a motor spare parts dealer. It was my business money they took.

    “At Command Road, they took my brother’s ATM card and withdrew N1.3m from his account; they threatened us that if we ever reported the matter, they would kill us.”

    His brother Ibrahim who came for visit and was robbed too also said, “They took his SUV, handcuffed us and took us to the Command Road Police Station but they did not take us inside the station. They took my ATM card, asked for my PIN and withdrew N1.3m from my account.

    “They were beating us inside the car; they took my brother’s Lexus SUV, and put me in the Sienna they brought. They threatened us that if we reported the matter to any police station, they would kill us.”

    “The family’s lawyer, Todimu Ige, said he had sent a petition to the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, and the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi.”
