A middle-aged woman, Ndubuisi Obiechina on October 31,2020 revealed to the Lagos State Judicial Panel in Lekki how she lost her two month old pregnancy while being detained by SARS in Ikeja for 22 days.

Obiechina disclosed this on Saturday at the continuation of the hearing of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution set up by the Lagos State government to look into allegations of brutality and highhandedness by personnel of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

“For one week, as a pregnant woman, I did not eat, I did not drink. I told them I wanted to go and register for antenatal. They said I should give birth to the child there,” she said.

“I told them the doctors said I don’t need any stress that my kind of body is the body that needs to stay one place. They said, no. Let the baby die. In the process, I lost the baby.

“It was later after the detention, I went to the hospital. They then found out that the baby was gone. We had to wash it off.”

After listening to her submission, the Chairman of the Panel and retired Chief Judge of Lagos, Justice Doris Okuwobi admitted as exhibits, the judgements delivered in 2017 and 2020 respectively.

When asked for any other matter to be used as an exhibit, Obiechina narrated how police authorities extorted she and her husband.

“We also bailed ourselves. When they released us, we bailed ourselves with N250,000 and N150,000 respectively,” she added.

While noting that the SARS operatives also arrested her husband who came to check up on her, the victim said they were put in different cells.

She also revealed how SARS operatives unlawfully took N50,000 in their possession and alleged that they both paid N150,000 and N250,000 cash for their bail.

The victim explained that although the court awarded her N2 million as damages against the police authorities, she is yet to receive the sum.

Obiechina’s remarks comes three days after another victim, Okoli Aguwu, accused SARS operatives of extracting his teeth while spending 47 days in custody.
