Sad: Policeman allegedly kills Abuja NYSC member a day to her POP.


The horror has taken place in the federal capital territory, right under the nose of our law makers, those in whom we placed our trust on the election day.

Acording to punchnews, a female National youth corp member named Linda Angela Igwetu, has allegedly been shot dead by a policeman in Abuja in the early hours of Wednesday.

According to an account of the incident shared by the deceased’s sister, Chineye Igwetu, and corroborated by ‘End SARS champion,’ Segun Awosanya on Twitter, the late Linda was shot around 3am on Wednesday morning.

Twenty-three-year-old Linda had finished work late at about 11pm and joined a few friends at a hangout before their Passing Out Parade out of the after college compulsory  NYSC, which was scheduled for Thursday (today) 5th July 2018.

The group ended the night around 3am and Miss Linda was shot  shortly after the check point immediately after Ceddi Plaza by a Police officer identified as Benjamin PETERS,” Awosanya tweeted

“The bullet hit Linda on her side, by the midriff and she began losing blood, from a vehicle that was described as an open roof.

“She was rushed to the Garki hospital, where Linda was attended to, a while after she was brought in. She was in a pool of her own blood, and had low heart rate.” according to eye witness.

Awosanya had initially claimed in one of his tweets that Garki Hospital first refused to treat the injured corp member without Police report; but he later corrected himself, saying that sources present at the hospital revealed that a consultant was called in, who attended to Linda immediately

“Medications were prescribed, but she has lost so much blood. We are, however, looking to clarify what happened between (the) time lag.”

“The case was later taken to Federal Secretariat Police Station where the elder sister of the deceased Chineye Igwetu was crying for help.”

Meanwhile, Police has reportedly confirmed the incident. For more on this sad news, please Continue reading via |
