Former Commissioner of Information and a Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has been allegedly tortured by the Ebubeagu operatives of the Ebonyi State Government.

According to report, the ugly incident occured this night along Water Works Road, Abakaliki Ebonyi State.

In pictures obtained by our correspondent, the former Commissioner was brutalized and injured.

Narrating the ordeal to our correspondent on Wednesday night, Onyike said, “I went out to purchase drugs to treat malaria as I’m not feeling well, and as I was about to come down from my vehicle, I was accosted by Ebube Agu operatives.

“They forced me back into my vehicle, jumped in and forced to drive to their office. When we got there, they stripped me down to my boxers and started torturing me. They asked me to face up as they were torturing me. They tortured me for over 30 minutes and of a sudden, their commander asked them to stop.
“They stopped and the commander told me to put on my clothes. After I put the clothes on, he asked them to return my materials which they had seized, such as my phone, my ATM and the little money I had on me. Then, they took me to another office where they kept me for about an hour.

“I was there when another commander came in and asked them to give me my car keys. We went to my car and he asked to drive; that he’s escorting me home. I followed him as he drove. When we got close to my house, he stopped and told me it was a case of mistaken identity.

“Surprisingly, after he left, a policeman came up to me and said he’s the DPO of Ekeaba division, and that the Commissioner of Police sent him to ensure that I was released. He said he was ready to escort me to buy the drugs if I still wanted to.”

It would be recalled that Abia had been attacked sometime last year when he made appearances in some national Television and radio stations during which he criticized the Ebonyi State government of Engr David Umahi.

SP Chris Anyanwu, the spokesperson for the Ebonyi State police command could not yet be reached for comment.
