On Saturday 27th August 2021 at about 1:30am, a member of the foremost human rights group; Joint Legal Action Aids (JLAA), was coming back from the Airport where he went to pick his uncle that came back from US.

After dropping him off at a hotel, he started heading home, without an inkling of what awaits him.

On getting to Isiba Olowu Street in Unity Estate Egbeda where he resides with his family, he saw four cars driving into the street and drove along with them. He suddenly noticed people rolling tires on their cars. On closer inspection, he realized it was the Legion security men guarding the street.

He reversed, to asked what the matter was. They dragged him out of his car, pounced on him and started hitting him with guns and chains, calling him thief.

They tried to handcuff his hands and chain his legs but he resisted. They sprayed teargas on his two eyes as they struggled with him.

He was surprise as he has been living in the same estate for 15 years and they know him and his car.

His car key was forcefully broken on the ignition as they tried to forcefully remove it, they took the sensor key away and shredded his shirt.

At this point, he managed to escape them and zoom off with his car, as the car was still steaming while they beat him. These security men chased after him with okada to his street. As he got to his street, he asked the security man at his ate to open the gate for him, but those security men chasing him told the security man not to open the gate, that he is a thief.

Though the security man knew him, he decided to listen to the other security men and refused to open the gate for him.

They continued to brutalize and assault him, while the street security man watched.
