This is Benedict Nwalaka, a photo journalist with Leadership Newspaper. On Thursday, officials of the Lagos State security outfit, Neighbourhood Watch, and operators of LASUTH mortuary, TOS Funeral Services, made a mincemeat of him for taking photographs.

They pounced on the photojournalist while he was covering the release of corpses of Dana Air crash victims at the Ikeja General Hospital Mortuary.
