SUG Petitions IGP Over Police Harassment In UNIZIK
By Ikechukwu Dikeojo
POLICE SPACS ENUGWU-UKWU, ANAMBRA, OUR GREATEST NIGHTMARE?
Greatest Nigerian Students, I bring you solidarity greetings from the Students’ Union Government Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka.
I Wish to bring to your attention the unruly and unprofessional display of intimidation, thuggery, criminalism and immorality by a particular unit of the Nigerian Police Force called SPACS, Anticult, located at Enugwu-Ukwu.
These unprofessional Force men invaded our students lodges in the early hours of today, Sunday 22nd January at about 4 a.m with criminal intent.
They harassed our students and forcefully collected thier phones, laptops, money and other valuables.
They even threatened to gang rape one of our female students who raised alarm and jumped into the bush from her balcony upon noticing their plans towards her.
Still, they took her phone, laptop, money and PS4 game.
They forcefully broke students’ doors thereby gaining illegal entrance into the students room simply because they claimed they were searching for Internet fraudsters (Yahoo Boys) in Ifite.
To our greatest surprise, they committed these atrocious acts wearing their police uniform with SPACS boldly written on them and their AK-47 Rifle weapons.
What a display of irresponsibility, rascality and impunity!!
They usually come with a white unbranded bus for easy loading of innocent students and thereafter dump them in their cell and demand a whooping sum of 200k and above for their release.
When shall this criminality from the SPACS end?
Must students be suffering because they came to acquire knowledge in the University.
On this note, we Zikites are giving the commissioner of Police, Anambra State Command, 24 hours to call the SPACS to order and return all the phones, laptops, PS4 game, and money they forcefully collected from Zikites who reside in Prince Godwin lodge, Ifite.
Or face the full wrath and the anger of Students as we will lead Zikites to block every entrance of this town if our demands are not met.
And to SPACS, I must say that this Union had in the past been so lenient with all your atrocious moves towards her students but henceforth, we will not condone such.
We are ready to die of your bullet if you don’t desist from breaking our house doors!
