the lawsuit include; the Inspector-General of Police, Nansel Nimyel, Charles Boga and one Mr. Joseph.
“I was unconscious for about an hour until the Ministry sent for paramedics who then carried me in a stretcher to the Ministry Staff Clinic where I was given first aid treatment.
When they saw that I was in extreme pains, I was immediately transferred to the Emergency Ward of the National Hospital where I stayed for about eight hours before I was rushed to the Trauma Department at National Hospital where I spent two days" he said.
