    Family, friends of man killed by stray bullet protest at Edo police command

    Family members and friends of 25-year-old Moses Adams who was allegedly killed by a police officer on Monday protested at the entrance of the Edo State Police Command.

    Adams, who was in a vehicle with his family members, was hit by a bullet while the police were arresting a murder suspect, Ebuka Nwaechie, who was involved in the alleged killing of a young man recently. Adams was said to have been rushed to the Edo Specialist Hospital where he died of gunshot wounds.

    The family blocked the entrance of the state Command in their demand for justice and blocked others who were trying to enter or exit the premises of the police.

    Family members of the deceased wept uncontrollably as they urged the police authorities to unravel the reason for the killing of their son and brother.

    Armed with placards and the photograph of the deceased, family members and friends of the late Adam said the youngman went on an errand for his elder sister whose marriage was slated for last Saturday when he was shot on his way to deliver the message.

    One of the friends of the deceased said, “The police claimed that their men were trailing one suspected criminal when the late Moses was hit by a stray bullet but I can say that Adams was killed intentionally by a police officer. We are calling on the police authorities to unmask the policeman involved in the alleged extrajudicial killing and ensure justice prevails.”

    Addressing the angry protesters, the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, ACP Miller Dantawaye, said the police authorities have visited the family of the deceased to express their sympathy.

    He said the Command would leave no stone unturned in ensuing that justice is served.
