A police personnel attached to the Akwa Ibom State Police Command, Mr. Bassey Peter Ikpe (an Inspector of police) reportedly beat up Mrs. Deborah Nkereuwem Nkpenie to death on Thursday, 16th of January, 2020.
The incident which occurred in the morning of this fateful day following the invitation which was premised on threats to the deceased by the policeman, was actually against the wise counsel of a senior police officer, the Deputy Commissioner of police
in charge of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department of the state command.
According to Ukpono Sunday Umoren, the Keke driver who saw what happened within the confines of the State Headquarters of the State Police Command, “the police man came approached
my Keke which bore the woman. He shouted at her that she was lying about her sickness. He made efforts to drag her out. In anger, he knocked her head by the side rail of the keke. The woman was screaming that, she not well. “She began to suffocate, and found it difficult
to breath. The police man kept insisting that she was lying. He even told her that, if she wants to die, she should die.
“As she was screaming, the police man was trying to pull her out of the Keke, her voice grew faint.
We were begging the police man to refrain from his hostile act towards the deceased. He ever refused us taking her to hospital. It was after she breathed her last, that he eventually ordered that she should be taken to the hospital.”
The Deputy Commissioner, Mrs. S. U. Horsefall, a Lawyer, had advised against unprofessional conduct by the said Inspector Bassey Peter Ikpe, including not bringing the both parties before the DC for interview before arraigning in court.
