|Izu Joseph's corpse|
Monday 24 October, 2016
Izu Joseph, who happened to be Biafran until his death was a football player with Shooting stars of Ibadan football club. He was shot dead by the Nigerian soldiers last week during his visit to his home town in Okakhi community, Rivers state, a town bordering Bayelsa state.
It was gathered that the footballer was armless as at the time the army invaded the community in search of millitants who allegedly have been destroying oil pipelines in the region in their quest for self determination.
All effort made by the villagers to stop his elimination proved abortive. The army went ahead and pelleted two live bullets in his body, resulting to his instant death.
Photos of his corpse has emerged, creating uproar and unrest within and outside the community.
