The Police officer who was responsible for snuffing the life out of Linda Angela Igwetu has been detained by Police.
Angela had been out with friends to celebrate the end of her National Youth Service stint and on the way back they were fired on by a police officer and Angela had been hit by a bullet and she then bled to death.
The incident happened in Abuja on the 4th of July just one day to Angela’s Passing out parade
The police officer responsible, Benjamin Peters, has now been detained and investigation into the matter is now underway.
Peters claims that he heard a cry for help which then prompted him to fire his weapon.
The police are also set to ask why the driver of the car didn’t stop even after being told to halt by officers. Also, the two other occupants of the car are also going to be questioned and asked to give an account of what transpired.
According to the victim’s sister, the Police are yet to give a concrete reason as to why Angela was shot
“All we were told is that they are investigating the incident, so we are waiting to hear from them,” Chinenye, Angela’s sister, said.
