Some men are just so heartless, I just don’t get it. A senior Nigerian Customs officer known as Mr. Nwaeze has boasted that he is “above arrest,” after bathing a woman in a deadly acid solution two weeks ago.
Nwaeze who heads a Customs unit at Mosafejo Aradagun, is quoted as boasting that he “can do and undo”.
The victim is Ms. Tope Fadipe. She is a Salesgirl at a local food store run by Mr. Nwaeze’s family. She had been selling stocks for the family for about three years before the incident.
On Friday, the 9th May, 2014, she was accused of not remitting N50,000 stock sales, and she had argued her defense.
However, residents of the community say Mr. Nwaeze got angry at her refuting the allegation, and a heated argument escalated where he bathed her with a deadly acid…
Sympathizers say the matter was reported at the Badagry Police Station, and Mr. Nwaeze had boasted no one could arrest him. On Saturday, the 10th of May, one day after the incident, Mr. Nwaeze was said to have appeared at the Police Station, and had returned shortly afterwards to show he is above arrest.
Currently, residents say, Nwaeze belched his car radio speakers loudly whenever driving in the street, with a carriage posting to show that he is above impunity since the May 9th incident.
A resident in the street told Sahara Reporters that it is part of Mr. Nwaeze’s forte, to “intimidate and oppress people with impunity,” due to his status as a Customs Officer.
The victim, Tope Fadipe, is currently being treated for her severe burns at Badagry General Hospital. But sadly witnesses and doctors say her condition is worsening since that attack.
Nwaeze is now trying to secretly withdraw Tope from the hospital, without stating his intentions. #injustice
