Emmanuel Akomafuwe narrated his ordeal when appearing before the Lagos State Judicial Panel on Police Brutality in Lekki on Saturday.
Akomafuwe, who was the first petitioner in today’s hearing, said when he sought to know why they were stopped, an argument ensued and he was shot in the head by a SARS Officer, he later came to know as Inspector Dan Ojo. The Inspector also shot his girlfriend, Adaugo in the stomach and leg.
He alleged that after the shooting, the police officers who were six in number took to their heels and left them at the scene to die.
He further said he is however lucky that he’s still alive but sad that his girlfriend, later died in the hospital.
“The officers involved are living their lives. Some of them were arrested but they have been released. None of them have been punished,” Emmanuel Akomafuwe said.
“The news of the incident was published in the newspapers and after this, the commissioner of police promised to pay my hospital bills but this did not happen and the police never returned to visit.
“I did scans on my skull and brain at Reddington, and also checked in Dubai. My sanity hasn’t been the same since the incident and I still can’t sleep without pills.
