An officer of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ugwueze Ezekiel, has dehumanized his teenage female sibling for having a boyfriend.
Reports had it that the security personnel have been hard on his younger female siblings, trying all means to prevent them of having any ‘boyfriend’ relationship.
Ezekiel who is identified as a residence of at Aviation Estate in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, reportedly returned from work last Wednesday and descended on one of sisters for refusing to yield to his warnings.
The victim, Amarachi Ugwueze, 19, is said to be a microbiology student at the University of Abuja, Naija News understands.
According to Saharareporters, the NSCDC officer started beating his sister on Wednesday after she refused to surrender her mobile phone to him for a check as usual.
Ezekiel reportedly beat Ugwueze to a stupor, leaving her with degrees of injuries.
Testimonies received about the officer revealed he is fond of torturing his two sisters over suspicions that they had boyfriends.
After beating and seizing her phone on Wednesday, Ezekiel reportedly locked Ugwueze up in a room throughout the night where he physically assaulted her further.
It was gathered that Ezekiel had previously seized her phone over the same issue, going as far as tearing her documents including her West Africa Examination Certificate and admission letter to a higher institution.
Narrating her ordeal, Ugwueze told SaharaReporters, “After he seized my first phone, I retrieved my SIM to get my contacts back with another phone my friend, Chisom, gave to me.
“Last Wednesday night when he came home, he asked for the new phone my friend gave me but I refused to give him. He immediately started hitting my head on the wall, slapping and using a stick to hit my legs. I had to bring out the phone because the beating was much.
After that, he asked me to lie on the floor and was flogging me with a cable and belt and sized my admission letter and certificate.”
The victim and her sister had to run away from the house after the torture, especially after threats from their brother of killing them because of disobedience.
SaharaReporters reported further that in an attempt to prevent them from reporting the matter to the police, the civil defence officer after touring the girl, sent some thugs to forcibly bring them home.
Their parents, Naija News learnt have been unable to curtail the excesses of Ezekiel as he had been rude to them.
The officer according to residents is known in the estate as a violent law enforcement officer because of the way and manner he intimidates people with his profession.
However, the two young ladies have since gone into hiding over death threats from their brother.
