Nigerian Police Force killed Chigozie Nwaiwu, a 23-year-old welder in Imo State and supposedly marked him an individual from the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to legitimize their activity. Chigozie was said to have visited Uchenna Chukwuanyanwu, who is supposed to be his beloved companion, at his shop when the episode occurred. On the said day, the business visionary was purportedly with his companion when three police officers raged the premises in a Toyota Venza vehicle and hauled Uchenna into their vehicle with next to no clarification.
As indicated by the source, Chigozie, who was apparently stunned by the activity of the officials, had moved toward them to ask them for what good reason they were removing his companion.
In any case, the officials were said to have shot him in the head and driven off, living him in a pool of blood.
The cops were said to have gotten back to the location of the episode later and whisked Chigozie’s defenseless body away in their van.
The source said occupants of the space were all the while regretting over the matter when the state police order delivered an assertion guaranteeing that Chigozie was an IPOB pioneer killed in the Ehime-Mbano Local Government Area of the state.
The source said: “The two young men, Chigozie and Uchenna have been companions from youth. Chigozie visited Uchenna (the child of Iron) Chukwuanyanwu in his welding shop. Out of nowhere, a Venza vehicle showed up and the vehicle inhabitants got the welder and tossed him into the Toyota Venza vehicle.
“They were going to drive off when Chigozie asked them for what valid reason they were removing Uchenna. The vehicle tenants who wore common garments shot Chigozie dead (in the brow). The vehicle zoomed off and individuals accumulated round to perceive what had occurred.
“Out of nowhere, a similar vehicle returned and every one of the spectators ran willy nilly. The vehicle tenants basically got the assemblage of Chigozie and unloaded it in the vehicle and zoomed off.
“The groups of Chigozie and Uchenna were all the while considering what happened when today the police in Owerri gave the above assertion. Presently, the people who saw what happened are dumbfounded.”
The source said the individual that the police agents came to capture was one Chidera, an aluminum specialist, who claims a shop near that of Uchenna.
He added: “The individual they came to convey was one Chidera; he is an Aluminum specialist who claims a shop near that of Uchenna.
“Chigozie was shot to death just in light of the fact that he demanded to know the explanation Uchenna was being stole. The most irritating piece of this is the official statement by the Police earlier today.
“They named Uchenna as the head of IPOB in Ehime Mbano, that is clearly false from the pit of agony to legitimize their activities. My heart actually drains, I have not seen such devilishness since I was conceived.”
In a request made accessible to SaharaReporters, Uchenna’s family censured Chigozie’s homicide and the unlawful detainment of their child.
The appeal, endorsed by Ebuka Igwe, the family’s legal advisor, was addressed to the associate examiner general of police in Umuahia, Abia State.
It read: “There is a video proof of all that happened showing how the casualty was lying in the pool of his blood with residents grieving around his carcass. We accept that the police can’t profess to storm IPOB/ESN (Eastern Security Network) hideaway with just three cops in a red hued Toyota Venza.
“We likewise accept that the Police can’t profess to storm the IPOB hideaway, when they have given their contact to the objective’s significant other.”
The legal counselor noticed that the family have no certainty that equity will be done regarding the present situation, “subsequently, our request for the exchange of the case to your regarded office for an autonomous and cautious examination”.
