Police Kill Teenager In Bayelsa On Independence Day by 4mulanoni(m): 8:06am On Oct 03, 2012
The Independence Day anniversary recorded a tragedy in Bayelsa State as the police allegedly killed a 16-year-old boy along Hospital Road in Yenagoa.

Police patrol teams were immediately withdrawn from the metropolis on Tuesday shortly after the killing.

The killing of the boy, whose identity could not be ascertained, increased to three, the number of persons allegedly shot dead by the police in the past two months.

Our correspondent found that the incident which occurred at about 5pm on Monday threw the popular road which has many bars and brothels into panic.

Eyewitnesses told our correspondent that after shooting the boy, the policemen immediately fled the area.

One of the eyewitnesses who identified herself simply as Charity said the killer policeman was seen running after the boy.

She said the policeman who was some miles away from the teenager opened fire on him but made a U-turn after discovering that he had died.

She said sympathisers who later approached the body discovered that the boy was shot in the head.

She also claimed that the victim’s girl friend was arrested by the police.

“Many of us witnessed it. We saw the boy running and we also saw a policeman chasing him with a gun. Suddenly we heard gunshots, and saw the boy fell to the ground with blood gushing out of his head,” Edna claimed.

She said the body of the victim was on the road for over an hour before a police patrol van from the “A” Division came and took it away.

The Police Command Public Relations Officer, Mr. Fidelis Odunna, confirmed that the police took away the body of the victim but said he had yet to know the circumstances that led to his death.

“I can confirm the death of a youth because I was driving along the road when I saw the corpse of the boy lying on the road. I then called the Police Division in charge of the area to come and remove it,” he said.

He said the remains were taken to the mortuary for autopsy, adding that investigation had commenced on the matter.

“We cannot say that the boy was killed by the police because we are yet to establish the allegation,” he said.

Trust the NPF to defend their own. Even if there was video footage of the teen being shot at close range by a police officer, the NPF will probably say it was an armed robber in disguise.

There's no justice in Nigeria, at least not for the poor and under privileged.

Belated Happy Independence all.

Re: Police Kill Teenager In Bayelsa On Independence Day by bid4rich(m): 9:22am On Oct 03, 2012
I think the best thing to do to our police is to make them learn another strategy of handling cases instead of carrying gun up and down. This killing of innocenties are just becoming too much to bear. In fact God has begin to get angry with police everyday because they are not different from devil having put on their black and wretched uniform. F.oo.lish pheople

What the hell is wrong with those beetle-headed policemen and their thirst for blood,imagine a police office admitting the body being taken for autopsy when it was glaring that the boy died of gun shot.
Hopeless besotted men in uniform

I love Nigeria. A country where policemen usually kills unarmed civilians at will.every time I see a policeman I have it in front of my mind that this man could kill with little provocation. Let's be on our guard the police is not our friend. Just like nigeria kill nigerians everyday through corrupt practices from the top to the bottom of the three tiers of govenment. 1 advise to nigerians save yourself,heal yourself of the many wrong programming.the system breeds evil.

The
reporter is not sure of the killer,he said police disappeared from the
area and later said police removed the corps and arrested the victim's
girl friend. How did they know his girl friend and they dnt know d
victim's name. Lets be sincere i know we hate police.

Did you read this from his comments, 'he theft blackberry' Is that enough to warrant his being shot, mind you he did not debunk police being the shooter?

Most of the gruesome images posted on Nairaland are taken from elsewhere, especially from the Congo...some people have their own sinister agenda.


it's probably about making you feel Less proud and confident about yourselves. About making you feel inferior...
