US-based reggae artiste, Victor Essiet, has made good his promise to slam the Nigeria Police with a court suit for the brutal manner in which he was treated recently.
The aggrieved artiste, who claimed in a recent news report that he was severely beaten and tortured by a team of operatives from the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Lagos, is suing the police for N1bn.
In the report, Essiet also said that apart from inflicting injuries on his body, the police brutality cost him the November music festival in which he had invested no less than N200m.
Hearing in the matter is scheduled to begin in January 2105.
