A man identified as Matador from Orsu Iheti Ukwa in Imo State has had his manhood chopped off by hoodlums.
The man was seen tied in a viral video horizontally to a stick and subjected to inhuman treatment by his torturers said to by members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The hoodlums were heard accusing him of being a saboteur responsible for military bombardment of Orlu during an encounter with the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the security arm of IPOB.
It was learnt the man, in his late 50s, was picked by masked men in a dramatic operation along Okigwe roundabout, Owerri on Saturday.
Matador, said to be former Special Assistant to a House of Representatives member, was tied to a stick covered in a pool of his blood after his manhood was severed.
A background voice in the video accused him of allegedly leading military operation that led to the death of many people in Orlu.
Imo Commissioner of Police Abutu Yaro confirmed the Command “is aware of the iniquitous and obscene video that has gone viral on social media where, a man was seen tied horizontally to a stick undergoing inhuman act by some suspected hoodlums.”
In a statement by Imo Police spokesman CSP Michael Abattam, Yaro said the Command has commenced investigation into the viral video to unravel the truth behind it.
