Is asking Question to your Right a problem now? 
A 200-level undergraduate by the name John Ekefre  that works with a cinema house around Surulere, is currently receiving treatment at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital in Lagos State after
being beaten to stupor by some unidentified police officers said to be from the Iponri division of the State.
The Punch reports that the 22 year old victim was apprehended alongside some of his colleague while on their way to a church program at Tafawa Balewa Square around 11 pm after close of work.
Ekefre, who was alleged to be a robber was brutally tortured by the suspected policemen for being too inquisitive after they arrived at the police station.
Narrating his ordeal, the victim who underwent certain surgical operations to rectify an internal injury he sustained from the incidence said; “I work at a cinema in Surulere. We were on afternoon duty that fateful Friday. We closed around 11pm and left for TBS to attend a church programme – The Experience 10.
“When we got to Costain, we alighted from the bus we boarded because there was gridlock. About five policemen on patrol stopped us and we told them we were going to the church.
“They searched our bags, but nothing incriminating was found there. They forced us into their bus. We showed them our identity cards, but they ignored us.
“On our way to the station, I asked them what our offence was and they said we were highway robbers. When we got to the station, they dragged me down, beat me up and one of them hit me in the stomach with the butt of his gun.
“They said I was too inquisitive. The following day, they collected N6,000 from my brother before I was released,” he narrated.
Meanwhile, Ekefre’s family was said to have spent approximately N200, 000 on the victim’s treatment
“The doctor said his intestine was ruptured and that he had a blood clot. He had a surgery and we are still awaiting the medical report,” recounted the victim’s elder sister, Mercy Ekefre.
