No fewer than 10 naval personnel, attached to the NNS Soroh, Gwegwe, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, have battered and brutalised Mr Alexander Ebipadou, a civil servant with the state’s Board of Internal Revenue.

The naval officers, led by Seaman Adamu A.P., armed with daggers, horsewhips, planks, sticks, belts and other weapons, pounced on Ebipadou, popularly known as Biggie on Instagram, and allegedly beat him to a pulp, over an offence he (the victim) knew nothing about.

It was learnt that the incident occurred on Friday, March 17, 2017, about 7.30pm on Customs Street, Biogbolo-Epie area of Yenagoa metropolis.

The 22-year-old Ebipadou, a Business Administration graduate from the North American University, Republic of Benin, had reportedly gone to buy a bottle of soft drink (Sprite) to enable him to take his malaria drug when the naval personnel accosted him and started giving him the beating of his life.

After the brutalisation, Ebipadou was left with a swollen face, red eyes and bruises on some part of his body.

It has yet to be ascertained why the naval officers assaulted the Ebipadou, but those who witnessed the incident said that in the morning of the fateful day, Seaman Adamu had a fight with an unnamed boy in the area.

They said that the Seaman, a former driver to a former Flag Officer Commanding, Central Naval Command, Rear Admiral Dick, had come back in the evening on a revenge mission in company with his colleagues for the humiliation he suffered earlier and resorted to beating any youth found in the area.

Eyewitnesses said Ebipadou was ”found in a wrong place at a wrong time,” noting that when the fierce-looking naval operatives stormed the area in a zombie-like manner, they pounced on him (Ebipadou) and battered him until he was unconscious.
