A 29-year-old photographer, Ejeh Smith who was brutalized alongside his wife, Grace(both pictured), by the police last December at a roadblock in Ikoyi, Lagos State has been arrested for buying a stolen keg of diesel.
A police officer, Corporal Dada Ogunsanya had hit Ejeh(pictured) with his rifle butt and manhandled his spouse at the Lekki Roundabout on December 3, 2015. He was tried by court martial, found guilty and demoted to constable.
Two months after the incident, Ejeh is being held in police custody for buying stolen keg of diesel.
It was said that last week, a security man in his neighbourhood stole 25-litre of diesel from where he works, and sold it to Ejeh. The diesel was later traced to the photographer, and was arrested and detained at Lion Building Police Division
It was further gathered that after he was granted bail, the Ikoyi Division rearrested him.
Ejeh’s wife who confirmed his arrest said he is being victimized because of the face-off he had with the police.
