The three Bansang CID police officers arrested the accused, cuffed him and beat him together with the complainants. They accused the boy of stealing.
Abdou Camara, father of the accused expressed disappointment with the Bansang CID officers, saying they should have arrested, questioned and detained or released his son and investigated the matter but not to take the law in their own hands.
Mr. Camara explained that he was at home when the CID officers came with the three complainants.
“One of the complainants bites my son in the process while the CID officers watched,” he said.
He said the police should be seen as enforcers of the law and not breaking it.
Mr. Camara said that when he went to the police station to check on his son, the commissioner of police at Bansang instructed the complainants to put him in the cell.
Mr. Camara who is a patient, also said he was wounded on his leg in the process.
He therefore called on government to look into the matter, saying if not, the said perpetrators would continue to take the law into their own hands. He also called for justice to be served.
