His tweet read, “On Sunday, October 8, at DBS Road Asaba, this 18-year-old suspect, Ebube Linus, raised a false alarm that an old woman inside a tricycle touched him and his manhood (penis) disappeared.
“Over 100 misguided louts gathered and mobbed this woman, stripping her naked and beating her to a stupor to the point of almost killing her.
“The Command was contacted and the DPO GRA division Asaba led policemen to the scene, rescued the woman, and arrested the suspect who we later discovered that nothing was wrong with him, as his manhood was intact.
“He just lied against a poor woman, a mother, a daughter, and a wife. Now the video of her being beaten and stripped naked is all over the internet.”
The PPRO further advised citizens to refrain from jungle justice adding.
“We are hunting for everybody in that video, they will be arrested and dealt with in accordance with the law alongside the suspect“, he said.
