Man Allegedly Shot Dead By Police After Being Labelled A Robber

Mr Israel Joe, a Nigerian human rights activist and poet, has accused the police in Ekpan division, Effurun in Delta state of shooting and killing an innocent man.

Israel revealed that the victim simply identified as Christian, was a member of committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) Delta state branch before his tragic demise.

According to the report by Israel... 
the incident occurred at about 9pm on 18th June at front of Praise Centre Church, Jakpa Road Effurun.

In a bid to cover up their actions, they quickly deposited the decease at Warri central morgue with an instruction to the mortuary attendants never to disclose their identity.

The police squad led by one sergeant Wilson at Ekpan went ahead to allege the decease as an armed robber who opened fire at them.

The deceased’s car, a black Toyota Solara is reportedly parked at the Ekpan Police station.

"The police in Ekpan division, Effurun has yesterday shot and killed an innocent Nigerian. The victim "Christian" by name before his unfortunate death was a member of committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) Delta state branch.

"This incident occurred at about 9pm yesterday 18th June at front of Praise Centre Church, Jakpa Road Effurun. In a bid to cover up their actions, they quickly deposited the decease at Warri central morgue with an instruction to the mortuary attendants never to disclose their identity.

"The Squad led by one sergeant Wilson at Ekpan went ahead to allege the decease as an armed robber who opened fire at them. The victims car a black Toyota Solara is presently parked at the Ekpan Police station. I have never seen an armed robber robbing with his car and after he was killed the other escaped from a one-door vehicle.
