An official of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Segun Enikuemehin, is currently at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) with one of his eyes totally damaged.‎

According to Sahara Reporters, the incident happened on Sunday August 14th when Segun saw some military officers beating a harmless civilian. Worried that the officers could kill the man, he approached the soldiers and pleaded that they stop beating the man and take him to the nearest police station if he had done something illegal.

The military men would not take such effrontery lightly as they descended on him and started beating him as well.
He however rescue the man and took him to the Police station at Ebute Metta.
Eyewitnesses say Segun afterwards led some police officers back to the venue of the incident. Upon sighting him in the company of the policemen, the soldiers, who were by that time already cooling off at a nearby beer parlor, became even enraged and descended on him during which they plucked out his eye and threw it on the ground.
The damaged eye was picked from the ground and Segun was rushed to the General Hospital.  Rejected upon arrival by that hospital, the blinded man reportedly asked that he be taken to LUTH.
Meanwhile, the soldiers, upon realizing what they had done, were said to have taken to their heels but were overtaken by residents and handed over to the police.
They were however released shortly.
