Metro Friends Decry Suicide Allegation by Police

The friends of 25 year old Babtunde Apoche, a driver in Lagos State are not happy and are crying foul over the suspicious and sudden death that Apoche endured under the hands of the Denton Police State, Ebute Meta, Lagos State.

Apoche was held and tortured under police custody over allegations that he had stabbed his brother in law during a fight in June of 2013. After the altercation between his brother in law and Apoche, who was also stabbed, the matter was reported to the police where Apoche was subsequently arrested and believed to be tortured. He was denied medical attention and was reported dead by suicide after three days.

The police did not release the body to the grieving family until sometime in July, even though Apoche’s death occurred in June.

According to a friend of the deceased, the family of Apoche was being harassed by the police to keep silent over the issue because no one really believes the deceased had killed himself.
