Oct 28, 2014 – Pictures: Nigerian Police ASP Emmanuel Mbilla Turns Blind After Navy Officer Poked His Eye With Car Key In Apapa Lagos

3 years before his retirement, a dedicated officer of the Nigerian Police Force, ASP Emmanuel Mbilla has turned blind.

Mbilla who served at the NPF for complete 30 years plans to set up his own private security firm after retirement in 2018 before the unforeseen happened.

Tragedy struck after a life-altering encounter with a Navy rating, Warrant officer Unaji Benjamin Enejor in Kirikiri area of Lagos.

On the 22nd of February 2014, 50-year-old Mbilla was at his wife’s shop at 25 Agunbiade Street, Kirikiri Town, Apapa around 3:30pm when a red Honda rammed into the shop.

Read what the landlady of the shop, Olasunmbo Agunbiade told Punch Metro:

 “I am the landlady of the property at 25, Agunbiade Street, Kirikiri Town, Apapa. Emmanuel’s wife, Caroline, sells drinks right in front of the house. Around 3.30pm on February 22, Emmanuel and his wife were seated in front of the shop when a man in a red Honda car rammed into their shop.

“When Emmanuel accosted the driver, the man alighted from the vehicle and identified himself as a navy man and Emmanuel in turn, identified himself as a police officer. The man wanted to leave but Emmanuel told him that he could not leave without at least apologising and the navy man just used his car key to poke Emmanuel in the eye.

“Emmanuel fell to the floor and started screaming, ‘I have lost my sight’. When the navy man saw the severity of the injury he had inflicted on Emmanuel, he jumped into his car and sped off. However, as residents were chasing him, he drove into a gutter and we arrested him.”

A medical report issued by the Eye Foundation Hospital and signed by Dr. Olufemi Oderinlo, the Consultant Opthalmic surgeon/Vitereoretinal specialist on March 3, stated that the victim would need to be flown abroad for treatment for any hope of regaining his sight.

The suspect, Unaji Enejor who was earlier arrested has been released from police detention.

    I h8 dis story. Anyway, dis is d kind of thing dat police officers do 2 helples civillians&come out dry. Dat is nt 2say I gloat ova dis one.

    Power is one thing dat is constantly abused in Nigeria. Where things r don properly, dis Navy officer shd b shamefully relivd of his duty & made 2do a hard term behind bars.

    Uni4md men r just brutes. Not mor dan a week ago I wz driving2Calabar frm Uyo. Getn 2a mili3 chekpoint@Itu Head Brigde, I stopd. They seemd 2 hav a prblm cntroln d whole traffic dat had built up. There wz a truck b4 me, & den sevral oda vehicls behind me.
    As we waited. a particular mili3 man walkd up 2me & was talkn, flashn his torchlight. It wz nite. I slid down my glass so I could hear him. And gues wat he den did…

    B4 I knew it, he planted a full fist right in my eye. I askd him Y he hit me & wz busy rantn, askn me Y I wound dwn my glas instead of doing wat he said, or wz it 2 show him dat I wz enjoying AC?

    It hurt so badly as I stared powerlessly @ him. I said it b4 & 4 emphasis I repeat: All uni4md men r brutes as far as Nigeria is concernd.

    @ssluv you are wrong for dish out blame on that police officer. The Naval officer was wrong for not apologizing for the property damaged. Let’s try to be fear in everything we are doing. The police officer in question was not demanding for any remuneration or any payback but simply asking the man to at least apologise for the wrong doing. To me that is not too much demand from the police officer side. In well civilized society that police officer has more power of arrest than the Naval man. This is a civil offense in which a police officer has more power to enforce law as officer of law. The Naval man is only powerful during the time of war. I think there is confusion between our men in uniform as regards to who has more capacity of causing an effect in a situation like this. There should be a total overhauling to these mess.
