Onitsha Riot: Photo Of The Igbo Driver Killed
More info coming on the Onitsha riot that erupted yesterday between Igbos and Hausas says the whole thing started because the driver did not agree to roger the policemen N50.
In case you missed the story, a Policeman who is hausa by tribe, shot an igbo commercial bus driver in Onitsha. To pour salt for injury, the bus driver is suspected to be a member of the Movement of the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) .
Angry igbo residents descended their wrath on all hausa men in seen in Onitsha, number of casualties is yet to be ascertained.
One of the passengers who gave her name as Ifeoma Obi told The Nation that the deceased did not do anything that warranted his murder, adding “its was just pure wickedness on the side of the policeman who because of just N20 wasted this young man’s life”
She also said that when the policeman first shot at the tires of the vehicle, the deceased who was the driver could not move again, a situation she said helped the killer cop to shoot at the deceased from closed range, shattering the glass of the vehicle.
According to Chief Uwazurike who spoke through his second in command, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, the dismantling of all police check point became necessary at a time when the safety of Ndigbo is no longer safe even in their land.
“For a Hausa policeman to kill an Igbo driver here because of mere N20 shows that the policeman is a Boko Haram member but we have urged MASSOB members to leave Hausa people alone because they are not our problem, they should concentrate on dismantling all police check points within the area” he said.
