Security men brutalise Lagos Dambe boxer

A Lagos State boxer, Amao Usman, has said that he was  ruthlessly brutalized by the  security men after complaining about the biased result of the officials at the end of his fight.

Amao, who was brutalised, said after the end of his match against his Yobe opponent, he felt he was cheated by the officials because he won  in the three rounds of the match.

According to him, “When we started the match, I defeated him by 4 points in the first round, 3 points in the second round and the third round, only for me to hear them declaring my Yobe opponent the winner.

“When I saw that, I decided to lodge complaint to the officials, and as I was doing that, the soldier men just came from nowhere and started beating me”.

He said he had no issues with the security men and wondered why he was severely beaten up by them.

Describing how he was beating, “The soldiers kicked me and they hit me with their guns on my head. I did nothing to them.”
