Samson Nwachukwu, a Special Assistant to Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, was recently slapped and attacked by an officer of the Nigeria Customs Service.
On Sunday, Rights advocate, Harrison Gwamnishu took to his Facebook page and posted the video of the incident which reportedly occurred along Benin/Agbor Expressway on Saturday.
In the video, the officer can be heard angrily asking who Mr. Samson Nwachukwu is after he had told him he is a Special Assistant to Delta State Governor before slapping him. The video ended with the military officer telling the customs officer to “get this man down.”
Sharing the video, Activist Harrison Gwamnishu wrote;
“SOLIDARITY MEETING FOR SAMSON NWACHUKWU.
I wish to express my displeasure at the physical assault meted on one of our own, the Director of intelligence/intervention, Behind Bars Human Rights Foundation and Special Assistant to Delta State Governor, Mr Samson Nwachukwu by some custom officers under the instructions of a rogue army officer. What a bummer!
This sad event occurred along Benin/Agbor Expressway on the 7th of May, 2022 on his way to carry out his activities of daily living.
Its no surprise that he did not retaliate the slap on his face as a well groomed Nigerian under the siege of our foundation, Behind Bars Human Rights.
I suppose this has happened to so many other citizens whom are more or less helpless in such situations.
We will not handle this abuse on our own with kid’s gloves as we request that the officers are fished out and arrested as we go through due process to ensure justice is served accordingly and offenders brought to book.”
