Five days after Boye’s hand was allegedly broken following an encounter with two Police officers over motorcycle document, the 40-year-old who is a farmer said he now suffers from immense pain on his arm. The unfortunate event has led state security agents to conduct an independent inquiry into his alleged assault by Officers of the State.
