A man identified on Facebook as MC Taproot has narrated how a policeman inflicted injuries on his face in Imo State, South East Nigeria.
According to him, the policeman was angered because the driver of the commercial bus he boarded couldn’t give him N100.
Vexed by the refusal, the policeman slammed the side mirror of the vehicle which resulted in his face suffering cuts from the shatter glass.

Because a driver of the car I was inside could not complied with his #100 demand, he has to hit the side mirror which broke and got me several wounds on my face.
And I ask, is police meant to destroy or rather harm citizens just because of money was not meant available to them?
I have forgiven him, and have gone on with my business after the treatment but my worries.. He never showed remours to his actions even when his colleagues condemned his actions and he even threatened to shoot me to death, which got me angry that I almost fought him, but remembering he was wearing a national uniform I kept my head cool and the people around confirmed it has always been his actions. I plead that If this ever get to the authorities, I want him to be stopped so that other innocent citizens don’t suffer same faith or him gunning an innocent citizen down someday.
