Policeman’s Children Beat Pregnant Woman To Coma, Parents Support Them


                                                   Mrs. James on hospital bed

I hope this story is really not true. So much injustice
taking place in this country because someone is a mere mobile policeman. Lord
have mercy. I really just hope this is not true. And if it is, the man needs to
leave their little Idimu community and its police station to make complaints at
higher quarters. This is unheard of! The story;

Medical doctors in an undisclosed  private 
hospital at Idimu area of Lagos, 
are currently battling to save the life of a pregnant woman, Mrs. Gloria
James who was allegedly  beaten to a
state of coma by children of a Mobile Policeman attached to MOPOL 20, Inspector
Richard Ekpo, last Friday.

Unfortunately for the woman, efforts by doctors to save her
first  two months pregnancy failed .

Mrs. Gloria Oluwatomiwa James was  allegedly 
first attacked by one of  the
policeman’s  son identified simply
as  Olorunda  in front of her shop at  Idimu Mammy market during a verbal

Trouble, as gathered, started  when she 
demanded for an apology from Olrunda whom she said stepped on her while
he was going to smoke Indian hemp from a local dealer around her shop.

Eye witnesses told Crime Guard that  the 
area is not only noted for smoking Indian hemp but also a haven for  cultists . Although, there had reportedly
been several raids and subsequent arrests by policemen, but that has not
stopped  the deed.

Rather than apologise, Olorunda, as  gathered, reportedly was not any remorseful
but confronted her.  He allegedly pounced
on the pregnant woman for daring to ask him to apologise and gave her a
thorough beating.Consequently she was 
rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Crime Guard  learnt
also that when her husband went to report the ugly development to the Mobile
Policeman, he was also attacked by his children.  The seriously wounded woman narrated how the
incident happened to Crime  Guard on her
hospital bed.

Explaining with difficulty owing to the bruises on her mouth
she said, “Last Friday , I was sitting in front of my boutique because there
was no light,when a youn g man came to buy  
Indian hemp from one of the local dealers around.  As he was trying to  sneak 
in to avoid being seen,he stepped on my feet. As I bent to  move his leg,he asked why  I was 
touching him rather than apologise.

Even when I showed  him the sand from the sole of his
slippers  that was still on my feet, he
still insisted that he didn’t step on me. An argument ensued during which he
threathened to deal ruthlessly with me if I opened my  mouth to talk again. Before I could respond,
he slapped and started hitting me.

“Other  shop owners
who came to rescue me from his grips withdrew immediately they discovered he
was the one. This is because everyone is afraid of him in that area.  That was how he continued to hit me, even
when I ran  inside my shop.   It took the intervention of a policeman in
uniform to rescue me from him.”

She continued, “ As  I
was nursing my wound , he came back and demanded that I should give him N18,
000 for his gold necklace.  I told
him  I didn’t see any necklace on him
when he came and before I knew it, he continued from where he stopped.  He went ahead to destroy my wares… At that
point, I ran to a corner of the shop and picked up my phone to call my  husband. Immidiately he saw me, he dared me
to call anyone ,boasting that he was the son of a Mobile Policeman and that
nobody can do anything to him. When I had the opportunity, I sneaked out
to  Idimu Police division to lodge a
Police attitude
“Immediately  I told
the policemen that I was beaten by the son of a Mobile Policeman, they looked
the other way.Then, all of a sudden, I started feeling funny and started
vomiting.  Rather than sympathise with
me, the policemen at the counter drove me outside, saying I should not mess up
the environment. I went outside as directed and sent a text message to my
husband  to rush to the station that I
was dying.
“When he came, one of the policemen  told him to take me to the hospital. Even
when he appealed  to the policemen to
effect the arrest of their colleague’s son who was still destroying things in
my shop, they refused.
“Out of pity , one of the policemen  whom I contacted earlier drove in with a van
and voluntered to take me to the hospital. We, however , went to my husband’s
shop first to take some money. On our way back, we stopped by Inspector  Ekpo’s house to inform him of his son’s
action. But his wife walked us out of 
her compound.
Another attack
Immediately we came out of the barracks gate, we were
attacked by Olorunda, his brothers and their friends. They hit my husband with
dangerous objects. In the process I fell down. They kicked me continuously on
the stomach until I passed out, only to wake up to find myself in the hospital
a week after.”
Collaborating her claim, her husband alleged that when he
went to report the case at Idimu division, he was thrown inside the cell on the
instruction of the Mobile Policeman whose children manhandled his wife. I was
released after four days.
“Again, when I went to open my shop, Inspector Akpo came
again with his children to attack me, asking who told me to open the shop. I
was teargased inside a supermarket where I had run into to take refuge. Since
then, I have not opened my shop,” he lamented.
Following this development, Crime Guard reliably gathered
that after getting a strongly worded petition, Force Headquarters, Abuja
ordered the immediate arrest of Inspector Ekpo while his children are presently
on the run.
