The National Association  of  Nigerian  Nurses  and Midwives (NANNM), Ogun state chapter is seeking justice over the brutality of one of their members,  Owolabi Taiwo Peter by men of state police command. 


Owolabi a male Nurse who is the clinic Manager in a private company under construction in Ogere area of the state was allegedly brutalised by two Mobile policemen  attached  to the company. 


It was reported that one of the policemen had visited the clinic, requesting for drug to cure typhoid but Owolabi refused to grant the officer’s request,  insisting  that the police must first undergo clinical check-up to know the nature of his illness before prescribing drugs for him.

Narrating his ordeal, Owolabi said, despite attending to the police officer in a professional manner,  advising him not to just assume that he had typhoid, he still walked away angrily, concluding that he (Owolabi) refused to attend to him.

Owolabi further explained that after some minutes, he saw the uniform man coming with his colleague, pointing at him while they have a silent conversation .

Owolabi said when the two policemen got back to the clinic, they descended on him, hit him with their  guns and beat him mercilessly,  an attack  that left  him with various degree of injuries. 

He stressed that it took the intervention of another policeman in the area to rescue him from the angry officers.

His words “A Mopol came to the clinic and requested for drug to cure typhoid but I turned down his request, telling him I couldn’t give him any drugs until I carry out lab test to know what’s wrong with him. I asked him to tell me how he was feeling and  the symptoms he felt so as to treat him symptomatically.
 But he quizzed, saying don’t I see on his face that he had typhoid.

He added “But I told him I cannot know until I carry our test. The man left, as he left, I thought everything has been settled but he came back after some minutes with another police. I saw both of them coming in an aggressive manner. As they came in they started beating me, they kicked and gave me punch. As I was shouting another Mopol came from nowhere and rescued me them.


 The NANNM Chairperson,  Comrade Olufunmilayo Solarin condemned  the action, insisting that police brutality must end.



Her words "The action is uncalled for even now that everybody is talking  about  Endsars. Police must learn  how to be humane. Police brutality must end . They must  learn how to relate with  people. Police brutality  is becoming too common  this days. It's high time police do something  to stop this brutality. What we want is justice .
