A man slumped this morning after getting slapped on the head by a police officer because he refused to have his phone checked in Lagos state.
The unnamed man was at Ojodu Abiodun when a police officer tried to search his phone. The officer couldn’t access the mobile device because it needed a passcode and the man refused to provide the code when the officer asked for it. The officer then tried to drag him to the Adugboluja Police Station, but the victim refused.
As a result, the officer got angry and hit the man multiple times at the back of his head until the man lost consciousness. He was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital by onlookers.
According to reports, police brutality is rampant in the area and the recent attack is just the latest in a series of similar occurrences.
