SHOCKING: Policemen Were Watching When UNIPORT Students Were Killed - Victim's Mother
Based on a report by Channels TV, in an exclusive interview with the TV station, the bereaved mother of one of the boys that were lynched and burnt to death in Aluu, last Friday in Port Harcourt, Mrs. Chinwe Biringa, has alleged that there is no security in Nigeria because police officers were around the corner where the gruesome murder of her son and three others took place but they chose to do nothing.
According to Mrs. Biringa, the police claimed they were at the scene of the incident but couldn’t stop the perpetrators from going ahead with their murder because they were overwhelmed by the crowd.
She however wondered why officers of the Joint Task Force who fired warning shots into the air to disperse the crowd to collect the burnt corpses did not use the warning shot tactic to control the ‘overwhelming crowd.’
“That was how they were able to carry their dead bodies. If the police had done warning shots.....” she paused and she switched to prayers that this unfortunate incident wont happen to anyone else.
