TRAGIC: OYOMA EDEWOR (33) SHOT DEAD BY POLICE IN FESTAC

"Someone I grew up with was killed yesterday by the police. He was raised in Festac and was killed in festac by the same people who are sworn to protect us. His car broke down and he called a towing van. While on their way, they were stopped by the police. The driver of the van refused to stop for whatever reason. When he eventfully stopped, the driver ran out leaving Oyoma Edewor and his friends to deal with the police. They were Asked to sit on the floor which they did. While explaining to the officers what had happened, one of them opened fire on Oyoma. The crowd which had gathered seeing this got involved. The policeman said he suspected he stole the vehicle. If you know Festac, you would know it's a small community. Passerby identified him as a member of the community. When the police realized a mob was growing, they fled the scene. Word spreading now is that the policeman was drunk and off duty." -broadcast from Oyoma's friend's

  1. Why would you shoot someone because you suspect they stole a car? How does that even begin to make any sense?

  4. Another tales of woe from a nation that grows from sucking the blood of innocent, productive citizens. A country of an incompetent lot where those who rule are confused and misguided. A place where laws are manipulated only to benefit the rich and the poor are cast into dangers of the inadequacy of a corrupt system.

    May God console the family and grant the deceased eternal rest!
