Inspector Henry Joseph – stripped naked by Major Mohammed

For daring to exchange words with a female Naval officer during rush hour traffic argument, a Police Inspector, Henry Joseph, was over the weekend severely beaten and stripped stark naked by the Commander of the State security outfit, the Quick Intervention Squad QIS, in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.

Inspector Henry Joseph attached to the Nigeria Police, Federal Housing Division, Calabar said he and a female Naval officer had an argument about “who blocked my car” following a near collision between their vehicles at the Mobil filling station along the Murtala Mohammed Highway Calabar.
But rather than settle the matter amicably, “the naval officer who drove a white Camry with registration number GF 426 EKY, Lagos called Major Mohammed who is the second in command of the joint patrol team who came to the scene with a patrol vehicle with the inscription QIS”.

The policeman said on reaching the scene of the argument, the Major dealt him several slaps and tore his clothes to shred and forced him into the back of the QIS pickup van and drove to their office opposite the governor’s office at Diamond Hill Road. “At the QIS premises, he handed a ‘koboko’ to a soldier attached to him who whipped me with it and blinded my right eye”.

The police inspector said he was only left to go when they had satisfied themselves and it was at that point that he noticed that the money he had on him had disappeared.
At the QIS office, Lt. Adeyemi who is the new commander that has been posted to replace Major Mohammed declined comment but a source close to him said, “He was not the Commander at the time but one Major Mohammed who has since been transferred. The Police inspector seems not to know his onions. He ought to have made proper enquiries to know that the Commander at the time of his attack was not Lt. Adeyemi.”

Mr Rekpene Bassey, the State Security Adviser to Senator Liyel Imoke who is in charge of the QIS told crossriverwatch that “I frown at such action and the matter is still under investigation.”

  • I describe it as a barbaric, inhuman in the face of the earth because you are 1 feet pass him in d level of authority.
    I can see the level of ignorance lies in the life of people by betraying a fellow man in order to satisfy d happiness of a woman.

  • The shame of a Nation! If security Officers who are properly trained to protect innocent citizens can degenerate to this shameful state, then we are finished. I wait to see the official reaction of the police hierarchy to this act of barbarism meted out to one of them.

  • WHAT IS THE POLICE AUTHORITY DOING IN RESPECT OF THIS ISSUE. IT IS BABARIC ACT, INHUMANITY TO MAN. A GAZZETTED OFFICER DESPITE WHAT MAY TRESSPASS BW THEM ON THE ROAD WHICH COULD BE TRAFFIC OFFENCE.
