A National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) member serving in Ekiti State, Anthony Ebuka  Onuagbara  has lost one of  his  eyes to police brutality, following an injury he sustained when he was allegedly beaten by some police in Ado Ekiti recently.

Anthony  26, who hails from  Ezeama-Amichi ,  Nnewi  South Local Government Area of Anambra State, lost his right eye to police brutality,after he was beaten by the police for an offence he did not commit in August this year

The corp member who  is currently serving at the Bursar’s office in Ekiti State University has appealed to Ekiti State police command to investigate the matter with a view of identifying the cop that caused damage  on his eye.

Narrating the circumstances that led to his ordeal, Anthony recounted that sometimes in August that a commercial sex worker had reported that one of his neighbour had abused her sexually.

The complaint, according to him, led a team of policemen  from the  Special Anti-robbery Squad to his house at Bode Ayeni  area of Adebayo who beat the occupants

According to the Corpmember,  his colleague, Michael had picked the lady  at about 6pm on August 12, 2012 at Fajuyi Area of Ado Ekiti to spend the night with him with the agreement to pay her N3,000 the second day

He further recounted that  disagreement ensued  immediately Michael took the lady home at about  8pm on that day because Michael  confessed that he could only offer the lady N2,000 .He said Michael’s action infuriated the lady and this forced her to the SARS Operatives  and reported the case to them by lying that he was abused sexually, even when no sex  took place  between them.

The ‘youth corper’ further explained that shortly after the lady left, some SARS operatives bombarded the premises at about 11pm, broke their doors and  unleashed beatings on the occupants.

Presently,  Anthony  is fast losing his sight , having  undergone  Eye surgery at the Ekiti State Teaching Hospital, the bill he personally sponsored without any help from the police authority.

When contacted, the police image maker in the state, Mr Victor Babayemi told newsmen that the affected youth corper had actually wrote a petition to the state police commissioner over the incident.

The PPRO said the matter was under investigation, assuring that the police would swung into action as soon as the investigation is completed.

    Some of our policemen reaction in handling some issue is seriously tarnish the image of NPF. Before reacting on issue I think investigation should be d first thing to do. How are you that the complainant is saying the truth? To the fact that a man sue another to court or report in station does not mean that he must be justify. Pls let the police boss see to this.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example

Published

on

Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.

Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.

The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.

With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.

Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.

Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.

Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’

To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.

With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
