The incident occurred on Tuesday near a military check point close to a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) around Nyanya market.

The deceased was conveying his two children to school in company of his wife when the policeman ordered him to stop.

Ogar was said to have made a U-turn at a wrong location to enable him get to the school on time before the police officers, who were on duty in the area, stopped him for failing to comply with traffic rules.

Dressed in his uniform, Ogar was said to have pleaded with the policemen to understand that he was rushing to drop his children in school.

His pleas fell on deaf ears, as one of the police officers jumped on the bonnet of the vehicle, while the other one descended on him with a baton.

John Ochai, a witness, said Ogar was allegedly beaten to the extent his wife had to intervene, while the children pleaded with the policemen to stop beating their father.

One of the officers was said to have swooped on Ogar; hitting him with a baton until he suddenly gave up the ghost.

He was confirmed dead at a hospital in Asokoro, where his corpse was deposited.

Jumbo Jumbo, brother of the deceased, demanded that the matter should not be swept under the carpet. He called on the police authorities to ensure that justice is served.

Bala Ciroma, FCT commissioner of police, has ordered the arrest of the officers who committed the crime.
