Nigerian Army Plucked out FRSC Official’s Eye for Trying to Save Tortured Victim

The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon when Mr. Segun Enikuemehin came upon the military men beating a harmless civilian.  Convinced that the military officials would beat the man to death if nothing was done, he reportedly walked up the angry soldiers and pleaded that they let the man go or hand him over to the police if he had done something illegal.

The Soldiers in a fit of rage then descended on the poor FRSC official and beat him too. Despite this, Segun heroically saved the man they were beating and took him to the Adekunle Police station at Ebute Metta

He then returned with some Policemen to the scene of the incident, when they saw him in the company of the policemen, the soldiers, who were by that time already at a nearby beer parlor, became angrier still and descended on him during which plucked out his eye and threw it on the ground.

Segun’s damaged eye was picked from the ground and after being initially rejected by the General Hospital, Segun was taken to LUTH where he currently is.

The soldiers tried to flee but were overtaken and arrested. We hope justice will take its cause this time.
