Cops Who Killed Osaze Osagie, Nigerian Student In US, Cleared Of Charges by EmagNig(m): 7:22am On May 12
State College cops who killed Osaze Osagie, a Nigerian student in the United States, have been cleared of all charges.

The police officers had implemented the use of force while serving a mental health warrant that resulted in the death of Osaze Osagie on March 20.

According to a the Centre County District Attorney Bernie Cantorna, the officers were in a “life-and-death situation” when they shot Osagie who was approaching them with a 5.16-inch steak knife, Onwardstate reports.

Osagie died of multiple gunshot wounds after the confrontation at his apartment on Old Boalsburg Road.

No charges will be filed against any of the officers involved in serving the warrant, and none of them were referenced by name by Cantorna.

“Given the distance between Mr. Osagie and the officers and the speed at which Mr. Osagie was moving, Mr. Osagie had ample opportunity to seriously injure and potentially kill both officers,” Cantora said in a press conference.

“The time that Officer No. 1 shot, there was no time for any alternative means to stop a potentially deadly attack by Mr. Osagie. At the time of the incident, both officers acted consistently with their training and were justified in the use of force.”

The full report detailed the course of events that led to the Osagie’s death after his father reported him missing on March 19.

According to Cantorna, the confrontation between Osagie and police at his apartment lasted about 30 seconds from the first knock on the door until he approached them with a knife and was shot.

Na only Nigerian dey die like chicken there. Why would he be rushing to a policeman with a knife like that. I would categorically said that before the police take the shot, they have already warn him not to make a move.

It's amazing that you guys always seem to miss the significant amount of bias against black suspects in the US. Someone is rushing towards a trained police officer with a knife, and the only option is to shoot him dead? Shot not once, not twice, but several times? Not shot on the shoulder or knees, but probably on the head or chest?

You live a country where a lot of innocent black people have been senselessly killed by their predominantly Caucasian police and you went on to charge at them with a knife? Sorry you killed yourself.

Trained police!

They can't use electric gun?
They can't shoot him in the leg or thigh to immobilize him.


They had to shoot him in the head or chest to KILL HIM.

GOD DEY



Woe betide the judge.


May they all know no peace for the rest of their lives.

Don't wanna sound heartless.... But for him to be rushing at armed policemen with a knife, even if unarmed, he was definitely high on drugs which is normal among the black youths there, especially Nigerians....
He actually invited his own death.... Like I said, if the testimony is anything to go by o.

Two police officers against one guy with a knife?
All they could think of was to shoot him dead?
Not even a surgery shot was fired to bring him down alive?

So he would have killed both of them with just a knife?
