‘How SARS tortured me with hot iron for N500,000 bribe’



By Rasaq Ibrahim, Ado-Ekiti

A 30-YEAR-OLD man, Mr. Ayotomiwa Elegbeleye, has told the Ekiti State Judicial Panel of Enquiry into allegations of police brutality how operatives of the disbanded defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) tortured him for bribe.

The petitioners said he was hanged and tortured with hot pressing iron for not offering N500,000 bribe.

Elegbeleye said he was arrested by eight SARS operatives in his home at Ikere-Ekiti on January 7, 2020, around 11:55 p.m and was taken to their custody where he was repeatedly tortured for an offence did not commit.

According to him, he was hanged with a rod in the custody while officers tortured him with hot pressing iron for 23 days for his failure to offer N500,000, which the operatives requested for to secure his release.

The petitioner, who was brought from the Ado-Ekiti correctional facility, showed members of the panel the bodily injuries he sustained from the hot pressing iron the operatives used on him.

He said: “I was arrested by the SARS operatives around 11:55 p.m in my house in Ikere-Ekiti without them telling me the crime I committed. That night, I was taken to their office. They beat and tortured me with pressing iron, that I should confess to being an armed robber.

“I was hanged up with a rod. I gasped for breath, begging them to release me, but they said I would only be released after the payment of N500,000.

“After 23 days in their custody and with serious bodily injuries, they took me to the police hospital in Oke-Isa, when they felt I might die due to my worsening health condition,” he said.

Elegbeleye, who maintained that he was never involved in any criminal activity, pleaded with the panel to investigate his case so that he could get out of prison.

“I come to the panel for them to assist me in getting justice from this suffering I am passing through for an offence I don’t know anything about. I need urgent medicare now because I am having serious difficulty in breathing due to the way I was beaten by the SARS officers,” he said.

Counsel to the police said a case of alleged conspiracy, murder and armed robbery against the complainant was before the State High Court.

But Elegbeleye’s lawyer, Layi Obisesan, argued that his client was before the panel to seek justice over the brutality he suffered in the hands of the SARS operatives.

Chairman of the panel, Justice Cornelius Akintayo (retd.), adjourned the sitting till December 3.

He urged the parties to present their witnesses on the adjournment date.

H.E President Akufo-Addo in a video going viral is seen receiving $40,000 bribe from 2 visitors (we are told they are affiliated to a government official) who came to is office.

In less than a week Ghana goes to polls. But events coming up before the election is not the best.

In recent times, following the resignation of Martin Amidu from the office of the Special Prosecutor, Akufo-Addo has seen ‘no peace’ over corruption allegations.

According to Martin Amidu, Akufo-Addo is the mother serpent of corruption, a statement that sparked serious controversy across the country.

In our gatherings from footage obtained, Ahalji Abass is said to have sent a delegation to see Nana Addo and they were led to the president by Dr Agyei Bawuah, Ghana’s ambassador to the United States.

In his company, a woman and a man were introduced as wife and brother of the director of Urban roads, Alhaji Abass Awolu.

The man who went with the woman explained that their mission was to mediate on behalf of Ahalji Abass because people envy and want him to be sacked from his position.

After the visitors had long talks with the President, the man stood up with a brown envelope containing the amount of $40,000 and handed it over to Akufo-Addo.

NB: The $40,000.00 bribe, according to gatherings, is to cease the constant calls for the removal of Alhaji Abass Awolu from office as the director of Urban Roads.

Seyi Law reacts to Kemi Olunloyo’s apology for calling his daughter ‘Obese’



Comedian Seyi Law has dished out a reply to investigative journalist Kemi Olunloyo after she apologized to him and some other celebrities via Twitter.

Recall, in 2017, Seyi told Punch that Olunoloyo was bullying his daughter calling her obese and diabetic.

“It is obvious that Kemi has decided to bully my daughter. Bullies usually fight people who are within their age bracket and people who have the same body size as them. For her to attack my daughter only means that she is unwell,” he said.

“Who bullies a young child? Never have I seen someone her age bully a child as young as my daughter who is barely a year old.”

The popular comedian however has now set grudges aside after the journalist apologised and reached out to him. He shared a picture of Dr. Olunoloyo, saying they have both put their diffrences aside and let love lead.
