Policemen, Hoodlums Batter Engineer For Not Disclosing His Boss’ Whereabouts..

A building construction engineer, Oyedokun Williams, said his life was brought to the edge after some hoodlums and policemen attached to the X-Squad, Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Alagbon, Lagos, brutalised him.
The hoodlums were said to have beaten him with charms and cutlasses while one of the operatives allegedly hit him on the chest with a gun butt.

Read according to Punch

It was learnt that Williams, an engineer with Adron Homes and Properties Limited, was going to the company’s site in Agbodu, Sagamu, Ogun State, in his car on March 30, 2017, when the hoodlums attacked him.

It was said that the assailants asked him to lead them to the firm’s general managing director.

When he denied knowing his whereabouts, the men pounced on him.

A few minutes into the assault, the policemen arrived at the scene to arrest Williams during which one of them reportedly hit him with the gun butt.

While the policemen whisked him away to their office, the hoodlums collected his car key and drove the vehicle to the Lotto area, where they abandoned it after developing a fault.

Our correspondent learnt that the engineer was released on bail by the police the following day and was subsequently taken to a hospital.

However, on April 4, Williams’ health worsened and was rushed to Ishalu Medical Centre, a private hospital in Ogba, Lagos State.

The victim told our correspondent on Wednesday that despite a series of tests and treatments he had undergone, he was still in pains.

He said, “Around 4pm on March 30, 2017, I went to get diesel for workers on the site. As I was returning to the site, three vehicles and about 21 persons on motorcycles, wielding guns, cutlasses, broken bottles and charms, stopped me.

“They asked me where the GMD was and I said he was not around. They started beating me and collected my car key. The policemen came five minutes after and said they were from X-Squad, FCIID, Alagbon. Two of them were in uniforms and they showed me their identity cards.

“As I was trying to know why I was being arrested, one of the policemen hit me on the chest with the butt of his gun. They took me inside their car while the hoodlums drove off with my car, which eventually got damaged. The policemen took me to their office, collected my phone and detained me. They released me the following day around 6pm.

“Blood was coming out from my ears and I had to go for treatment at Shilo Hospital in Shimawa. I collapsed while returning from the hospital with my wife on April 4. As I speak with you, I feel pains all over my body. My ribs ache badly and blood still comes out of my ears.”

A lawyer for the company, Ademola Koko, said a petition had been addressed to the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to bring the policemen and the hoodlums to book.

The petition accused the policemen of aiding the hoodlums to take over an expanse of land owned by the firm, adding that the company had got a court injunction restraining any trespass on the property.

The petition, dated April 10, 2017, read in part, “Our clients (Adron Homes and Properties Limited) are the owners of the 30 acres situate at St Agbodu, off Shimawa Alawun Road. Despite the court order some suspects continued to trespass on the land.

“To our utmost surprise, the suspects co-opted with some hoodlums as well as enlisted police officers of X-Squad Division, Alagbon, and carried out an attack on one of our site engineers, Mr. Oyedokun Williams.

“We plead that the full wrath of the law be brought to bear on these people.”

Efforts to get the reaction of the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Moshood Jimoh, proved abortive as calls put across to his line rang out.

He had also yet to reply to a text message sent to him as of press time.

5-Year-Old Boy Threatens Truck Driver With Knife In Order To Defend His Family's Shop. Photos

A five-year-old boy waved a fruit knife at a truck driver in northwest China to defend his family's stall. It isn't the first time the fearless young boy nicknamed Xiao Pang has been in the spotlight, having appeared in a previous video waving a metal pipe at the local police to defend his grandmother's stall.
The latest video emerged online today showing Xiao Pang threatening to cut a truck's tyre as it was blocking his grandmother's street stall.

Xiao Pang, wearing a yellow vest and blue pants, angrily stares the female truck driver on the street of Xinjiang province, an autonomous territory in China.

He shouts at the driver with a fruit knife in his hand and can later be seen waving it towards the front wheel.

From the footage, Xiao Pang says the truck is blocking his grandmother's stall.
'You can't park here! If you park here, I will beat you up!' he shouted and pointed the knife up to the window with one hand on his hip.

He then flings the knife as he waits the truck to drive away.

In the video, onlookers can be heard laughing at the boy's behaviour and did not stop him.

We Are In A Relationship - 45-Year-Old Man Says After Impregnating Primary School Pupil. Photo

Mr. Victor Emmanuel, 45, who was arrested for having sex with a 13-year-old girl and putting her in the family way, has insisted that he did nothing wrong. The suspect described the girl as his fiancée. According to him, he was already planning to marry her and has given her parents N20,000 and some drinks as part of introduction and marriage rites. Emmanuel was arrested by detectives attached to the Ajangbadi Police Station after the victim’s school alerted them. The police said that the suspect raped the girl and described her as a minor.
Emmanuel, an indigene of Imo State, said: “I didn’t rape her! We are in a relationship.

We’re even planning to get married. We have been dating for eight months now. The girl’s parents know me. Yes, I know she’s pregnant for me. I have accepted the pregnancy and I’m already taking care of her.”

He added: “I have started the marriage rites. In fact, the girl’s parents had been collecting money from me. I have paid N20,000 to them for introduction and to buy drinks. They have also asked me to bring N100,000, out of which I have paid N64,000.”

Emmanuel said he was arrested after his supposed father-in-law, called and told him that the girl’s school authority said the victim was too young for sexual activities, let alone for pregnancy.

Emmanuel said: “The school authority said she was too young. The school authority insisted that I should come to the school. When I got to the school, I was arrested.” The Investigating Police Officer (IPO), Sergeant Mary Ikumo, said that the victim’s parents claimed not to know or had ever set eyes on Emmanuel.

According to Ikumo, the victim’s parents alleged that their daughter, who is just in primary six, was raped by Emmanuel.

Ikumo said: “The mother of the victim was with us yesterday. She said she didn’t know the suspect from Adam. The mother said that the girl used to hawk plantain and the suspect was one of her customers. He used to tip the girl N500 every time he buys plantain from her. One day, he pulled her into his shop and raped her.”

Emmanuel, a tailor, insisted that the victim’s parents consented to the relationship.

“They are already addressing me as husband,” said Emmanuel. He further said: “I take good care of her, including paying for her hospital bills. I go to her house at Ajangbadi every time. In fact, the mother called me last week and brought some clothes to my shop to sew for her.

The woman told me that she would be travelling this week. She used to bring food for me and sometimes drops the girl with me at my shop. “If police go to their compound to make their investigations, neighbours would tell them that I am her husband.

I have also been paying for her ante-natal. Yes, I once went with her to hospital for ante-natal. On most ante-natal days, her mother would come over to collect money from me.”

The matter, however, took a suspicious turn when Emmanuel couldn’t tell his supposed wife’s school address, home address or her parents’ names.

“It happened during the match between Manchester United and Anderlecht. I heard a deafening bang. I rushed out to see what was happening,” he was quoted as saying.

“When I turned back to go inside the viewing centre, I saw a cable coming down on the centre and this electrocuted the viewers in the hall.

“It was a horrible sight to behold. I wish I didn’t come out to watch the match. Come to think of it, I have DStv at home but I enjoy watching matches at viewing centres. I could have been dead.
