Contrary to the video footage being recirculated on the X social media platform where it was alleged that one Erasmus Emhenya, who died on April 6, 2023, while in police custody, was tortured to death, the FCT police command has stated that the unfortunate incident was diligently investigated, reiterating that the deceased was not tortured to death as alleged.

The command in a release signed by PPRO, SP Josephine Adeh said discrete investigations were conducted to determine the remote and immediate cause of death of the deceased, and an autopsy was carried out, which confirmed the stance of the police.

The command leadership, while vehemently affirming its stance and transparency, called on all interested parties who wish to know the outcome of the autopsy and investigation to visit the command headquarters through the office of the PPRO.

The command assured the general public of its steadfastness in upholding the rule of law and respecting the fundamental human rights of all residents.
