Blessing Mba, woman brutalized by Police DPO in Osun is missing


A 27-year-old mother of two, Blessing Mba, who was allegedly brutalized by CSP Ige Adekunle, Divisional Police Officer of the Adeeke Police Station, Iwo, Osun State has been reported missing.

Blessing, according to sources, left her house opposite Adeeke police station, Iwo on Sunday evening with her sons.

The Osun State Police Command spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola said police had invited Blessing to Command headquarters in Osogbo on Sunday.

According to her, Blessing ran away from Police while they went to escort her to Osogbo to meet with the Commissioner of Police.

Meanwhile, it was gathered that Blessing and one of his sons, around 9:30 pm on Sunday, left home hurriedly with a bag.

Blessing’s phone number has not been reachable, while all efforts to locate her proved abortive.

It has been reported that Blessing was on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, allegedly brutalized by some police officers on the order of the Divisional Police Officer.

She said that the incident happened when she had gone in search of her son, 15-year-old Monday, who had not returned home and was found to have been detained by the police.

Blessing said she was at the station when a police officer identified as Àpápá assaulted her and accused her of carrying ‘sacrifice’ to the station.

“We will kill you, shoot you and nobody will ask of you,” Blessing said the officers threatened her while she was pleading for her life until she fainted.
