“This is a clear case of weapon abuse. It

is our humble opinion that the policeman in question did not exhibit enough maturity and professionalism in his judgment before the trigger.

The Delta State born undergraduate was cut short by the overzealous policeman. He was a final year student of the department of physics, University of Port Harcourt, River State.”

No doubt, since you took up the reign as Inspector General of Police, things have changed for better with reform of the police force.

We urge you  to use your good offices to set up a high powered and dispassionate investigation into this killing, and bring the culprit to book the delay in the investigation of this matter is most unfortunate.
