Video: Woman narrates how her son was allegedly shot dead in her presence by police officers in Rivers state
One Mrs. Victoria Agori, has narrated how her 21-year-old son, Daniel, was allegedly shot dead in front of her on the 11th of May, 2019, by officers of the Inspector-General of Police Monitoring Unit in Alu, Rivers state.
Mrs Agori said her son, Daniel was shot dead after the police officers accused him of being a member of a kidnapping gang.
Sharing gory details of the incident during an interview with Root TV, the woman who was also arrested said the policemen allegedly inserted a stick inside her private part.
She said “2019, May 11, a Saturday morning, my son and his fiancee with my daughter, Felicia Agori, had an issue about a cloth. She called her boyfriend, Victor Nelson, to come and flog her junior brother and his fiancee so they will respect me as their senior.
“Come and flog him small to give me respect, she didn’t know it is to come and take the life of her brother and open her mother’s leg.”
According to her, the police officers, Bello Yusuf and Musa, allegedly assaulted her in the process, inserting a gun in her private part after accusing her of also being a kidnapper.
However, DCP Bello Yusuf, while testifying before the FCT Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Human rights violation by SARS alleged that late Daniel was a member of a kidnap gang and that his family members were covering up his criminal activities.
Yusuf told the panel that he and other members of his unit stormed the Agori apartment while acting on a tipoff that late Daniel was responsible for the kidnap of a 90-year-old woman. He told the panel that the officers recovered a locally-made single barrel gun from the deceased during the operation.
Mrs. Amori however dismissed DCP Bello’s claim, insisting her son until his death was a footballer.
“Because I refused to agree to a backyard settle, look at all what they are saying. They are saying all kinds of lies” she said
Mrs. Amori is demanding that the police release her son’s corpse to her for burial.
