The incident happened yesterday at Utako, Abuja and victim, Luke Abu, while sharing his experience on Facebook, wrote: “”I was trying to capture a video of a man fighting with a VIO staff and one of the VIO staff saw me from afar and crossed over to the other side where I was standing. He attempted to seize the phone and I refused, in the process of resisting him from dragging my phone.
I got two blows on my mouth and nose. Then I started bleeding…Not because am physically weak and can not fight but my profession does not permit me to so do. Am taking recourse to the law and I hope to find justice, and most importantly, to deter them from further harassing innocent citizens.”
