A policewoman, who allegedly clutched the private parts of a mechanic, Ikwunado Chima, while he was being tortured in detention has been arrested and detained by the Rivers State Police Command. The late Chima met his untimely death in police custody on December 23, 2019, four days after he was arrested. It was gathered that the policewoman, who was only identified as Rose, was arrested on Wednesday to join six other cops in detention in connection with Chima’s death. Chima and four of his friends were going home in a car when they were arrested by officials of the Eagle Crack Squad, who labelled them robbers and cultists. While the car owner told the policemen that Chima and his friends were innocent, the cops continued to torture them until the mechanic died in the cell. Chima’s friends had, after their release from prison, insisted that Rose came into the torture chamber and grabbed the private parts of the deceased. A source said, “They arrested Rose today (Wednesday). The woman came into the matter for grasping Chima’s private parts and threatening to destroy them. “She only came in while Chima was being tortured and she began to press the man’s private parts. That kind of woman, I pity the husband.”
Soldiers Allegedly Torture Man To Death Over N50 Egg In Plateau
On Tuesday evening, at about 7:00p.m. pandemonium descended on the Tina Junction Evening Market in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State, when a young man aged 31, Benjamin Arum Izang, met his untimely death after buying a cooked egg at N50 from one lady simply called Blessing. A disagreement had begun between the two in the course of transaction as Blessing alleged that Benjamin refused to pay her. As a result, she rushed down to the Operation Safe Haven (OPSH) army checkpoint at Dutse Uku, where Governor Simon Bako Lalong recently launched a Neighbourhood Peace Tour last month. After reporting to the soldiers at the checkpoint that the young man refused to pay her, one of the soldiers came and dragged the man to the checkpoint. According to an eyewitness, “the man was cruelly tortured in the head, hand and leg with iron rods until he became motionless and unconscious.” At that unconscious stage, he was allegedly abandoned where a Good Samaritan eventually rescued him from the checkpoint and rushed him to a nearby clinic where he was later confirmed clinically dead. The matter was thereafter reported to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) at Nasarawa Gwom Police Station by the community leader and also reported to the Sector Commander in charge of the area.

Ighalo To Earn N1.4bn In Six Months At Old Trafford
Odion Ighalo will reportedly earn the sum of N1.4bn (£2.98m) during his six months loan spell at Manchester United, Sports Extra can reveal. As of Thursday, the exchange rate from naira to a British pound sterling was put at N469.41. Ighalo joined United on loan until the end of the season in a surprise move as a cover upfront for Marcus Rashford, who is facing an extended spell out after suffering a double stress fracture in his back. The former Nigeria international, who took a pay cut in order to complete his dream deadline day move from Shanghai Shenhua to Manchester United, earns a whopping N60m (£130,000) per week. He earned £300,000 per-week at Shanghai Shenhua. In a month, the 30-year-old will receive N244m (£520,000) and in his six months at Old Trafford, the former Watford striker will collect N1.4bn (£2.98m) as salary. Ighalo is currently undergoing a personal fitness programme this week, in a bid to get up to speed, having arrived into Manchester from China last Sunday. The 30-year-old forward, who will wear the No.25 shirt, is confident he can boost United’s attack, which has struggled without Rashford, who he regards as one of the best in Europe at the moment. “They (Manchester United) have a striker that stays mostly in the middle, because (Anthony) Martial likes to come from the side, even Rashford and all that,” Ighalo said in an interview with Sky Sports.
