Senate asks IGP to probe maltreatment of Nigerians by foreigners

The Senate on Tuesday urged the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, to investigate the alleged maltreatment and torture of Nigerians by foreign nationals living in the country. 

This followed a motion by Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo (APC, Bayelsa), who said in a bid to get a confession from victims alleged to have stolen iron rods, a Lebanese ordered some of his Nigerian subordinates to gag the mouths of one Anayo Friday Ndubuisi and the late Chadian with rags to stifle any noise from them.

He said they were beaten mercilessly with iron rods, tied to a car and driven around their premises.  

“The Lebanese also set his dog upon the victims and the said dog attacked them”, Biobarakuma said. 

He said some suspects had been arrested and paraded by the police. He said the Lebanese had not been apprehended or paraded.  

The Senate demanded prosecution of those found culpable in accordance with the provisions of the law to serve as a deterrent to others.
