The family members of Chika Elekawachi are demanding a thorough trial of the 3 policemen that brutalized Chika Elekawachi, forcing her to give birth prematurely. Chika is the 8-month pregnant woman who was brutalized by
3 policemen attached to the Satellite Police Division in Lagos on Sunday, July 19, 2015. The cops dragged her on the road and stripped her half-naked after accusing her of resisting arrest.
She was later rushed to Safe Hands Hospital, old Ojo road, Amuwo, Lagos, by her sister, after she passed out at the police station. They got the shock of their lives when the doctor on duty said, based on instructions of the policemen that joined them at the hospital, that Chika was hale and hearty. Unfortunately, she started bleeding at about 11pm on Monday when she was rushed into the theatre for surgery.
Although the baby boy was delivered on Tuesday alive, and rushed to Outreach Hospital in Festac town, Lagos, which had a functional incubator, the baby died less than 48 hours after. Her family members have cried out over what they described as an attempt by the police to sweep the matter under the carpet. This is even as the Lagos police command had ordered the immediate arrest and detention of the suspects soon after the authorities learnt that the baby had died….. R.I.P to d innocent baby…… Credit: SUN NEWSPAPER
