UK Police reveal why Nigerian footballer, Kelvin Igweani was shot dead
The UK police have revealed that Nigerian born footballer, Odichukumma Kelvin Igweani, was shot dead because he killed a neighbour who rushed to save a toddler he took hostage.
It was gathered that the neighbour heard a toddler screaming for his life from Igweani’s house and he went to intervene but was killed.
Other neighbours were said to have called the police to report a “horrible commotion” inside.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that UK police had disclosed in a statement that officers were called to a property in Two Mile Ash, northwest Milton Keynes, at around 9.40 am on Saturday, and made a forced entry after acting on information from a witness.
When police stormed the flat in Milton Keynes, Bucks, on June 26, they found hero, Richard Woodcock, 38, lying on the floor lifeless.
Officers also found Igweani holding the seriously injured two-year-old boy captive in the bedroom.
After initial attempts to stun the 24-year-old footballer with a taser as he continued to pose a threat to his hostage, police shot him four times.
Igweani was pronounced dead at the scene and Woodcock died of head injuries while the toddler remains in a life-threatening condition in hospital.
