Police and law enforcement agents are meant to protect the citizenry from crimes and harm. It is very sad when the reverse happens of a police killing an innocent and unarmed citizen. In the US, the US police have killed over 5000 civilians since September 11, 2001 tragedy.
Every year across the world and in Nigeria these cases happen. How do citizens protect themselves from this situation?
One of the best advice is never to argue and be very careful with anyone with a gun or dangerous weapon.
In festive and hoilday season, a lot of people travel and come home from other countries to visit their families and attend other functions or celebrations.
On Friday Eto Nduka, a Malaysia-based Igbo guy from Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State, who returned to Nigeria this Christmas for his wedding was allegedly shot dead by police along Owerri Road in front of his fiancee and brother by a police inspector identified as Mike Edem, who was attached to a gas station following an argument. Friday Nduka was supposed to wed on Dec. 27th, being today. He was shot on December 22.
Confirming the incident, spokesman for the state police command, Andrew Enwerem said that the killer cop is on the run. Quite sad!
