Nigerian Navy Rear Admiral Ibrahim Dewu and his escort allegedly assaulted a policeman, Suleiman Jazuli and his brother, lawyer Hadi Jazuli.

The victims suffered varying degrees of injuries to their bodies, including the chest and eyes, when naval personnel hit them with guns.

In March, Dewu, former commander of NNS Delta State, was redeployed to Nigerian Navy Hotels and Suites Limited as general manager.

The senior officer and four security guards became enraged because the Jazuli brothers tried to overtake their convoy.

Hadi recalled that he and Suleiman were returning to Abuja from Kano with their families, where they had been for the weekend.

The lawyer was with his wife and children, while Suleiman drove in a separate car.

Ha said the problems started when he tried to pass a convoy of two cars, an SUV and a Toyota Hilux, around the Galadima axis along the Zuba-Kubwa highway.

“Both cars were going at low speed, then I tried to pass them. Suddenly the SUV swerved to the left and blocked the road to keep me from passing. I quickly applied the brake to avoid an accident, ”he told PRNigeeria.

Hadi backed up and entered the front door of the Galadima housing estate, but the driver of the Hilux dragged and blocked his car.

The Kano State-born attorney said one of Rear Admiral Dewu’s security details rained insults against him.

“As my brother, who was watching us from behind, came to intervene, four navy men pounced on him. Admiral Dewu himself was shouting that he would teach us a bitter lesson that we will never forget.

Hadi deplored the abuse they suffered in front of their wives and children. “They watched helplessly,” he added.

The brothers revealed that a petition would be forwarded to the Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS) Rear Admiral Awwal Gambo for an investigation.

They also hired lawyers to take legal action against Dewu and his guards to uphold their basic rights.

Nigerian Navy Director of Naval Information Commodore Suleman Dahun has confirmed the incident.

The spokesperson described it as a “misunderstanding” that would be resolved administratively.
