@segalink please I thought this killings will stop, she didn’t deserve this
The police shot her at a check Point in maitama last night , her sister said they were dragging with her and she was trying to run when they shot at her and its killed her. This lady just returned to Nigeria recently having lived almost all her life in the uk and it’s not even been a year shr returned and she gets killed in her own country by our own security personels.what kind of a country is this
Thank you so much. For now all we know is that she was shot at a “stop& search” by the police at the stop,they had a little drag and she was trying to leave when he shot her, this was at maitama abuja. It’s been reported according to the family but no feedback nw till tomorrow
Dragging wasn’t like physically,she was driving and on getting there they had a verbal confrontation, she is not the kind of person to break the law. So her running away was cause she felt threatened
The police shot her at a check Point in maitama last night , her sister said they were dragging with her and she was trying to run when they shot at her and its killed her.
