Photos: Nigerian Police Shoot Dead Man Who Wedded 5 Days Ago
Gbenga Adewuyi who stays at Gbagada, Lagos, is a friend to the victim. He tells the story -
"Ugo Ozuah was an amazing guy. Ugo went to Kings College, Lagos. He attended University of Ibadan but finished from UNAD. He got married last week saturday. He was shot by the Nigerian Police 5 days later in front of the UPS office on the Gbagada Express as he and his friend were flagging down a taxi cab. The police pickup pulled up and shot Ugo twice in his chest at close range as the bullet came out his back. He was not resisting arrest, he was not arguing with the police, he was not asked to identify himself, he just stood with a friend.
These policemen in uniform were drunk, IG of police has said they were not his boys. I guess he saw them from his Abuja office. We may not get justice for Ugo but please help tell the world. It may be your brother, sister, friend, child, parent etc tomorrow God forbid. But there has to be a process for the Police force. If they suspected Ugo he should have been asked to identify himself. Not killed like an animal and left to die. Thank you and God bless."
