…Urge IG To Fish Out Perpetrators

The Association of Lawyers with Disabilities in Nigeria (ALDIN) has expressed dismay over the police brutality of their member, Kassim Lawal Esq, a blind person who is also the Abuja Chairman of Association of Lawyers with Disabilities in Nigeria (ALDIN) and member of the NBA FCT Chapter.

Lawal, on Sunday night was brutalized by a team of Policemen at Two-One, beside Infinix Supermarket, Kubwa area of Abuja around 7:20 pm while he was on essential duty, delivering food palliatives to other persons with disabilities, who were stranded owing to the covid-19 lockdown and gave out a distress call.

The said policemen swooped on Lawal, clubbing him to the ground. They left him a bloodied eye, inflicted injury on his body and zoomed off.

In a statement signed by the President of ALDIN, Barrister Daniel Onwe and the Secretary, Gauis Ogan, they described the incident as the worst form of lawlessness, ironically perpetuated by a law enforcement agency.

The Association vowed that it will not allow the case to be swept under the carpet.

The group, therefore called on the Inspector-General of Police and the FCT Police Commissioner to ensure that the culprits are fished out to face prosecution accordingly.

The FCT branch and national leaderships of the NBA have also been notified of the development.
