Soldiers pounce on DPO, police officers for molesting Army Captain



The Divisional Police Officer in charge of Railway Post, Umuahia, Abia State is currently in trouble for ordering his men to molest an army captain, who reportedly packed his 18-seater Mitsubishi bus close to the fence of the Police station.

It was gathered that the DPO was said driving into the station when he spotted the bus and ordered the owner to re-park, claiming that it was blocking his way, The Nation reports.

The Army captain, who was not in uniform was said to have come out, greeted the DPO and quickly wanted to re-park his bus. But the police officer was said to have ordered him to come closer and explain why he should block his way to the station in the first place.

The military personnel was said to have pleaded with the police officer and promised to re-park but he refused to allow him remove the vehicle.

Rather, he was alleged to have ordered his men to arrest the military officer, who at that juncture had identified himself.

“He must obey my arrest order; you people should tell him to obey my arrest order. You must obey my arrest order, you said you are a captain, you must tell me how many wars you have fought.

“I have fought in three Boko Haram states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe before coming here, you must show me your identity today; drag him into the cell now,” the DPO was quoted as saying.

While the argument lasted, four soldiers arrived the scene and discovered that the man being molested was actually an army captain.

According to a source, they became furious that an officer was calm and gentle to plead, yet he was being disgraced by the police officer.

“They called for reinforcements and within a twinkle of an eye, four Hilux vans loaded with soldiers arrived the police station.

“They later took away the DPO and another police officer with them to their base, after giving them the beating of their lives”, the source further stated.
