"I Haven't Seen My Only Son Since He Was Arrested In 2007" – Mother Cries Out

A traumatized mother has cried out to the Rivers panels of inquiry, and also narrated how her only son was arrested by the police since 2007, and she hasn't set her eyes on the son since then.

She disclosed that her son was arrested when he went to his friend's house in Ogbunabali, Port Harcourt, to watch football. For 13 years now, her son has been in the police custody or has demised, the woman knows nothing about her son now.

Mrs. Patience Mbang also disclosed that her son Mr. Andrew Mbang, was arrested on 20th of September, 2007, and he was arrested and taken to Olu Obasanjo police station in Port Harcourt, by one Supol Bassey.

She testified yesterday at the Rivers State Judicial Commission of Inquiry on alleged acts of Violence, Torture, Brutality, Murder and Violation of Fundamental Human Rights of citizens by men of the Nigeria Police.

"I have not set eyes on him since that day. I have lived with the trauma all my life. They didn't let me see my son, at a point they started making fun of me and dribbling me around, mothers know the pain to bear the child, yet his life was ended just like that," she said.

Mrs. Patience therefore discussed that the absence of her son has really brought hardship to her family, and also requesting compensation from the police to the family.

"We have suffered for too long. He would have raised me up by now," she lamented.

For Mr.Andraw to stay this long in the police custody and no one had heard from him, do you think he is still alive? Or is he dead and the police didn't let the family to know about it?

And the Mrs. Patience Mbang ought to have demanded for justice, what do you think?
