Covid-19: Police Beats Journalist Mercilessly in Umuahia


The offensive against media professionals by security agents is obviously on the increase with the case study of what happened to AFNews (Abia Facts Newspaper) reporter today on his way to work.

AFNews reporter by name Thompson Nsisiongabasi was on his way to work today from Ahiaeke axis, when he got to Orpet junction in Umuahia, he saw people running not knowing that Police Officers and Civil Defense officers have had a face off at the junction.

Police officers led by one Inspector Sunday Daniel rounded up Thompson and accused him of recording them, meanwhile Thompson\’s phone was down since last night due to power failure.

He quickly identified himself as a journalist, but they ignored his identification and started beating him up to a point that blood started running out from his nose.

The police officers also collected his dead phone and seized it.

When a superior officer arrived, Thompson approached him and laid a complain, the said Inspector Sunday Daniel acknowledged beating the journalist, but also denied collecting his phone.

Abia Facts Newspaper hereby calls on the Commissioner of Police in Abia State to intervene by  investigating the matter and bring to book the dishonorable Inspector Sunday Daniel.
