Video Of Police Recruitment Applicants Beaten, Tear-gassed In Benue State.
Some of the candidates in the ongoing police recruitment exercise from Ogbadibo have revealed how they were treated like common criminals at the screening venue in Makurdi on Thursday.
Some of the candidates said the officers handling the screening exercise flogged, tear-gassed and chase them out of the screening venue for no tangible reason.
One of the applicants, who came all the way from Lagos for the exercise, said he has been sleeping outside since he arrived Makurdi because there was nowhere for him to stay.
“I came all the way from Lagos for the exercise. I don’t have anybody here. I have been sleeping in front of a shop at Demekpe since I came into this town. All the many I came with has finished. Now, they have canceled our screening for just no reason. I don’t know where to go from here. This is wickedness,” he lamented.
Another applicant from Owukpa said he nearly passed out when policemen opened tear-gas on them.
“I nearly died because of the tear-gas. They treated us like common criminals for no reason. I am going back home now, I am fed up with the whole process. I have lost interest,” he said.
Also speaking, a female applicant from Orokam said she left Abuja because of the exercise but she is going back without any result.
