December 16, 2015 – Picture: House On The Rock Church Member Tortured By Police Hospitalised For Ruptured Intestine
Meet John Ekefre, a member of Pastor Paul Adefarasin’ House on the Rock Church in Lekki Lagos who suffered terribly in the hands of some police officers on the night of December 4th, 2015.
Ekefre and 3 of his friends were heading to the Experience program organized by his church when police wrongly accused them of robbery.
They were arrested in Constain area of Lagos around 11pm and taken to the station where they were tortured for several hours.
John Ekefre suffered the most beating because he challenged the men in uniform over their unlawful arrest. He said the policemen beat him to a coma when he demanded to know what their offence was.
He is currently receiving treatment in LASUTH for damaged intestine.
