Recall that in May 2017, a Gospel artiste Sunny Blu Opukiri has revealed how he was maltreated by policemen who labelled him an armed robber because he spoke against them for allegedly brutalising a Keke rider in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state.

According to him, after a tricycle rider parked neatly just after a bank, trying to negotiate with his passenger and give him change, a police van appeared , officers came out and entered the tricycle giving the charge that the rider blocked the road leading to the entrance of someone’s compound.

According to him, he wondered how the neatly parked tricycle was blocking the road and if the owner of the driveway told them to stop people from parking close to his driveway, where there was no sign saying no parking, they were just watching and after the tricycle guy refused to come to terms and settle them, the argument escalated and the tricycle rider refused to let them take his Keke away because his papers were complete and he was parked properly. Sunny said the Policemn started using his rifle to hit the rider severally and the rider kept on dodging the gun.
