There’s really an urgent need to overhaul the whole rank and file of the Nigeria Police Force. At a time like this when all the chips are down and the attention of the global community is on the Nigeria nation over the 240+ missing school girls abducted by the dare devil insurgents, just yesterday evening, Saturday, May 10th, 2014, a police Sergeant attached to the Festac command wasted the life of a promising youngman, Oyoma Edewor-33, a Building Finishing Contractor over “Egunje”. And this is the third time this kind of case will be reported in same Festac Police Command.
According to eye witness account, the trigger happy Police Sergeant, Sgt. Otene who was so drunk at the time of the incident shot at the young man at close range when he refused to “settle” him for using a towing van to get his car off the road.
Tracing the genesis of the event that led to the unfortunate incident, National Enquirer gathered reliably that the Building Engineer’s car had had a slight accident somewhere around Lekki, Lagos and instead of leaving it on the road, to obstruct traffic, he decided to get a towing van to take it home in Festac.
Informed sources confided in this office that, as soon as the Police team at the second junction, Festac sighted the towing van which had already passed them by, they hijacked the nearest commercial bus and ran after the van. The towing van, we gathered was intercepted at the third junction and as soon as it was stopped, Sergeant Otene and his colleague (just 2 of them performed the illegal operation) took charge dragging the promising young man,Oyoma Edewor out of his towed Jeep and ordered him to seat on the ground.
The Policemen were however said to have threatened him to settle them and he was just about to explain the situation when Sergeant Otene pulled the trigger and shot him at close range. Though, he’s been arrested, reports reaching us have it that, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the Festac Command is trying to act funny by changing the face of the story in order to absolve his men. We’re on the story and we shall do everything possible to make sure justice prevail in this case. Please let’s all rise.
