DPO summoned by CP as Woman allegedly tortured by Policemen is missing
A woman and her two children have been declared missing in Osun State after a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and other police officials allegedly brutalised her in Iwo council.
It was gathered that the woman, Blessing Mba, went to Adeke Police Station in Iwo to secure the bail of her son who was detained there.
But police allegedly accused her of bringing fetish sacrifice to the station.
A source said the DPO of the station, Adekunle Ige, ordered his men to torture her because she refused to leave the station.
“Blessing fainted while the officers were torturing her which forced them to stop. The police later helped her to regain consciousness. But the woman has gone missing since last week Friday after the incident,” the source said.
Police spokesperson Yemisi Opalola confirmed the incident, saying, “Investigation is ongoing to unravel the matter as the victim is still missing. The Commissioner of Police ordered the policemen involved to be detained at the State CID, while the DPO, CSP Adekunle Ige was told to report at his office.
