Police deny torturing a guy to death over a lost vehicle battery in Shedrack Ochoche.


The Federal Capital Territory, FCT Police Command has disputed that cops murdered Shedrach Ochoche for allegedly stealing a vehicle battery from a Chinese lady known as Madam Pimpim. Mr Ochoche, a native of Benue State's Agatu Local Government Area and a former employee of a Chinese restaurant in Abuja's Jahi neighbourhood, was tortured to death on January 17 after being suspected of carrying away the batteries. 

According to the DAILY POST, Ochoche, a restaurant janitor, quit before his suspected murder due to the organization's failure to pay his wages for many months. According to a notice published by a famous human rights lawyer in Abuja, Napoleon Otache, the dead resigned from the Chinese woman's restaurant after being due to more than three months' wages. He stated that five days after Ochoche quit the cleaning job, the Chinese lady complained about her vehicle battery being gone and proceeded to the Mabushi Police Division in Abuja to make a complaint, which resulted in the worker's detention. He urged the appropriate authorities to act swiftly to ensure that the bloodthirsty police officers and murders of Ochoche be apprehended in line with the law. 

Similarly, several Nigerians have taken to their social media accounts to seek justice for Ochoche and to call for an end to police abuse. However, when reached by DAILY POST, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Josephine Adeh, disputed the storey, stating that "nothing like that occurred." Meanwhile, Hon. Godday Samuel, member of Parliament for Apa/Agatu federal seat, denounced the 29-year-old man's murder. Godday and many other stakeholders from Benue reported that Ochoche died in police custody after his detention and mistreatment by policemen."While he was detained, his family members visited him, and upon witnessing his deteriorating health as a result of the injuries he sustained, his family members made an impassioned plea for his release, but their plea fell on deaf ears," he said in a statement.
