Anambra Guber: Trigger-happy police officer attached to APC Candidate, Tony Nwoye, Yemi Osinbajo, shots dead unarmed trader in Nkpor

ANAMBRA - In the late hours of Friday, 20th October, 2017 at about 6:30pm, a trader who was retiring to his home met his untimely death at the hands of the Nigeria Police escorting the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo who was on a solidarity visit to Mr. Tony Nwoye, the All Progressives Congress, APC, gubernatorial candidate in the State.

This unfortunate incident as reliably gathered, happened as Osinbajo emerged from the campaign ground at Onisa Onira garden in front of Zik's roundabout, Borromeo junction in Onitsha.

Biafra Writers Correspondent who was on ground to get a first-hand information on what transpired between the deceased who died on the spot and the trigger-happy policeman, gathered from an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity that, "the slain trader was driving down from Nkpor New parts expressway towards Tarzan junction, when on getting in front of AP petrol station at Tarzan junction, a police vehicle that was in the convoy of the Vice President and their APC party members was spotted driving on full and heavy headlights and at high speed trying to block the trader who was driving in his Toyota Camry car.

"On noticing he was been followed by the police on the Vice President's convoy, the trader cleared by the roadside in front of AP petrol station, alighted from his car to know why the police wanted to block him, an elderly police officer came down from their vehicle and shot him three times in the heart while he was still standing beside his car, then he slumped and died on the spot.

"After the shooting, the trigger-happy police officer entered back into their vehicle swore at the deceased and they drove off. By this time the convoy carrying the Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo and the Anambra State governorship APC flag bearer Mr. Tony Nwoye drove and passed the deceased lying in the pool of his blood. They never cared to stop to know what the situation was all about, they never cared that an innocent civilian, a trader who was going home to his family after the business of the day was just brutally murdered by the policemen that were escorting them.

"All they cared for is their election campaign which they must continue with before it gets dark."

It was however, gathered that this nonchalant and criminal act infuriated the youths around the crime scene which caused an instant turmoil that evening.

In a rage, the youths set a deserted police vehicle ablaze and blocked the expressway with the car of the deceased placing his corpse on top of his car in protest of his death.

Few minutes later, another heavily armed police convoy stormed the crime scene, shooting sporadically to disperse the angry mob. They picked up the corpse of the deceased, his car and drove off.

That was how an innocent and unarmed civilian lost his precious life at the hands of those whose job was to protect life and property of the citizenry, and that was where it all ended because as far as Nigeria is concerned, no further investigation into this heinous crime committed by a police officer will be carried out. This is Nigeria where anything can happen and nothing will happen!. This unfortunate incident will most likely be swept under the carpet as usual without prosecuting its perpetrators.

Biafra Writers is not reporting this because the deceased was a Biafran, but for the sake of humanity, we are calling on men and women of good conscience to probe this matter and hold the Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo and Mr. Tony Nwoye and the Anambra state police commissioner responsible for this heart-wrenching crime.

That trigger-happy Police officer must be brought to book and the Anambra state television authority must broadcast and air this news while that police officer must be prosecuted for the sake of justice to the deceased trader so that others will learn from it.

Then again, this justifies the "No Election Order" by IPOB in Anambra State. Whenever IPOB say that these politicians do not care for the citizenry on whose franchise they rode into power, people will begin to accuse them of preaching hate and spreading propaganda. When they tell people that these politicians are ready to kill in order to remain in or clinch power either by hook or crook, they will start doubting it and calling them all sorts of names.


But the events of yesterday, Friday, October 20, 2017, was just a tip of an iceberg to what will happen to anyone who ventures to go out to any polling unit on November 18, 2017, to cast his or her vote.

That date has been declared a "SIT-AT-HOME" day by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB. Therefore, whosoever that defiles this order and comes out of his home is totally on his own. To be forewarned is to be forearmed We must not risk our lives for people that do not care about our welfare after we have voted them into power.
