About two years ago, some military men damaged the eye of an official of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Segun Enikuemehin, for daring to ask them to stop assaulting a civilian. Trouble started when Enikuemehin saw some military men beating a harmless civilian on Sunday, August 14, and for fear that the man would be beaten to death, he walked up to them and pleaded that they let the man go or hand him over to the police if he had done something illegal. Soldiers pluck eye of Road Safety officer Segun Enikuemehin For confronting them, the angry soldiers descended on him and started beating him as well, Sahara Reporters reports. The road safety official managed to rescue the badly beaten civilian and took him to the Adekunle police station at Ebute Metta. Enikuemehin was said to have led the police back to the venue of the incident.
At that time, the soldiers were already cooling off at a nearby beer parlor but when they sighted him in the company of other policemen, they became enraged and descended on him again, plucking out one of his eyes. The damaged eye was reportedly picked from the ground as he was rushed to the General Hospital. On getting there, the hospital rejected him. He then asked to be taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) where he is currently receiving treatment with one of his eyes totally damaged. The soldiers were said to have taken to their heels after realizing what they had done but they were caught by residents who handed them over to the police. One of Segun Enikuemehin’s eye is said to be totally damaged However, when Enikuemehin’s uncle, Prince Ojatunwse Oluwajoba, got to the police station, he realized that the military men had already been released by the police.
