The police officer arrested and kept Ebenezer from evening 6 pm till 11 pm; and when he could not pay the money he was demanding, he went to lock him up at 11:30 pm.

As the police normally do when they are extorting money, no official entries were made and he was locked up without due process.
Ebenezer complained of hunger and stomach ache throughout the night and was ignored.

He died the next morning.
The arresting officer and the Counter NCO who was on duty have been recommended for interdiction.
