What have Nigerians in the diaspora done to deserve such brutal treatment from authorities in countries where we’ve chosen to make our homes?
This video has not been verified and we can not 100% guarantee that the man in this video is in fact Nigerian but whatever nationality he is, this type of treatment from a country’s police force or security personnel is totally unacceptable and should be condemned in the strongest terms.
First, there have been reports that Malaysian police shot dead a Nigerian student last week, Nigerians are suffering maltreatment in India too and now this.
The clip shows the young man being stripped naked by one of the security guards while he’s beaten and repeatedly kicked in the groin. Another guard grabs him by the neck and the torture continues….unbelievable!
Whatever his crimes; armed robbery, drug dealing, fraud or whatever, he should be tried in a court of law and not by miscreant security guards who pick on unarmed men in full public glare, just for the fun of it.
We hope that the South African judiciary system is at least better than what we have in Nigeria. These men should be charged for assault and any other term the lawyers can come up with.
We would like to see how on earth they intend to justify stripping him naked in public and then beating him up before even taking him to the Police Station.
