A heartbroken mother has recounted how she lost her son in the cold hands of death while he was thrown in the Nigerian police custody.

In a video making the rounds online, the devastated mom could be seen crying profusely as she narrated her ordeals in an online program ‘Berekete Family’, stirring emotions among social media users.

Apparently, her son, identified as Erasmus, was apprehended by the police over a murder case along with some other young men. The mother stated that he was falsely accused and arrested.


According to the woman, she brought food for Erasmus only to find out that her son could not see her. She queried a policewoman who told her that her son was so tired to receive any visitor at the moment.

However, she was informed by one of her son’s inmates that Erasmus was brutally beaten to death by the police officers overnight.

Narrating her devastating story, the mother revealed that she was bundled out of the station after she started to wail bitterly over the death of her son.

The woman made it known that the officers boldly told her that her late son is not better than the other innocent people whom they have been killing in the station.
