HOW WILL THE POLICE KNOW THEY WERE UNARMED. INSTEAD OF OBEYING THE POLICE ORDER, THEY ZOOMED OFF. WITH THE INFORMATION WITH THE POLICE, THEY SUSPECTED THAT THEY MUST BE AMONG THE ROBBERS.
IT'S UNFORTUNATE. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE.
Irrespective of the public sentiments and the fact that Nigerian police are mostly incompetent, they are not wrong in this case. That's if their version of the story is true.
When police tell you to stop you stop. Otherwise you face the consequences. It's the same even in the USA.

They don't want him to blow their secret. They were shocked that a lawyer is bringing rasom to their conspirators in d bush.

For the police to admit killing him, they have already achieved a bigger goal.


NBA should sue d division and persecute them. Police aid kidnappers and kidnaping/ robberies are done on daily bases in Kogi State.




YOU ARE 120 PERCENT CORRECT,

The security people have a hand in all these crime going on in Nigeria.

Just look at how Wike placed a ramsom on a dangerous terrorist and he was arrested within a week.


Criminals in uniform.

So you don't know that kidnappers do put on police and army uniform?

Since you fired a warning shot and the assume criminals didn't fire back why go ahead and shoot directly at them.

Meanwhile you can't shoot at unarmed civilian whether a criminal or not you have to neutralize them and arrest them that's how it's done everywhere in the world.
Re: Police Admit Killing Barrister Elias Ugwu In Error by Chickensoup: 12:15pm On Mar 15
Why would they lie like this. They tried to stop him but he sped off then you guys shot at the car to stop it. First of all, why would a barrister who is fully aware of the law disobey the police when he already knows there is nothing that can implicate him especially after saving the cousin. Everytime the police tries to defend themselves when they do something wrong.

Then they said they took him to the hospital. At this point, the police still didn't know the identity of this man so which means the police still thought they were armed robbers. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD NIGERIAN POLICE TAKE ARMED ROBBER TO HOSPITAL!. They killed this man and decided to create a cheap story that wasn't thought of properly.

There's no excuse madam
If you're stopped by men in uniform, you have only 2 options: stop for them, or take a risk and run for it, especially if you're 100% certain you can outrun them or their bullets.
They took the second option and it didn't pay off.
Whether criminals use military uniforms or not is irrelevant. In fact criminals are more likely to kill than the police so it was still a bad decision to zoom off.

First of all, it's a lie that they were flagged down by the police and did not stop in a bush. Secondly we need to hear from the survivors before we believe the police

Marry a virgin oooo, so that your children will not be mistaken for a criminal.

A woman who has been fvcked by many men will give birth to children who look like many men. One of her previous fvcker may be a criminal, police will just kill your child thinking he is the criminal.

Marry a virgin. Don't start a family with a dirty womb. Don't pour clean wine in a dirty cup.

Are you serious? or are you just bullshitting with this comment? To make matters worse this fool has 5 likes. Tell yaa everything happening in that kosi kosi (kosi owo, kosi ina, kosi food everything always kosi kosi) country is now coming into focus. What a freaking disrespect to women, How the fu*k will you know a dirty womb when your black a*s sees one.

You sound like a police officer that's why you can't reason along... Your reasoning is outdated Mr man

Or you just want to be indifferent as a typical naija man undecided

Re: Police Admit Killing Barrister Elias Ugwu In Error by Panda7(m): 2:09pm On Mar 15
you are shooting directly at an unarmed civilian who didn't shoot first at you. I believe even in America this case would've been under investigation in court
Re: Police Admit Killing Barrister Elias Ugwu In Error by ObidenceNeckpre: 2:24pm On Mar 15
not even that, this a pure murder case by that police officer who shot the man, its purely unprofessional, how can u shoot and killed at sight a man who poses no threat or hold any weapon or gun??

Very usel@ss and lazy policemen. They are very good at giving lame excuses. The robbers operated in Anyigba for several hours unchallenged by the police only for them to surface after the robbers had left successfully and begin to shoot unharmed civilians.

They would have carried police along hook line and sinker.

I guess being black is the first glue that the individual must be a criminal. You parroted exactly the same wording normally used by Southern United States people whenever they tried to justify their racist takes on an event. That is what I found amazing

I was surprised no one was willing to give the police a benefit of doubt.

Yet we want police to fight armed robbers and kidnappers, but condemn them for following up on a suspicious report.

If the Police version is true, I do not blame the Lawyer who knew what he was getting into, as he must have had a lot of cash on him to pay the kidnappers, hence why he did not comply with the police directive.

The lawyer was in a bad place that just wasn't going to get better if he had waited.

He took the risk and the outcome though unlucky for him, is standard procedure for the poorly trained Nigeria Police Force who would rather kill than be killed.
