Imo State: NBA Owerri Branch Protests Over Alleged Police Attack On Two Lawyers In Ngor Okpala (Photos)

The police allegedly attacked two Lawyers at Ngor Okpala magistrate court last week for applying that some accused persons be released on the basis that the charge against them was a defective one (not properly done/or worded).

According to our correspondence, they were expected to prepare a better charge and re-arrest the persons involved but they allegedly attacked the lawyers and re-arrested the boys.
