According to PMNewsnigeria.com, this sad event happened on Friday, 18th Of December, 2020 when the victim –Abiodun Jimoh who is Intel Staff left the house with his brother, Ismail Jimoh, and heading back to his own house with his brother.
They were reportedly stopped by police officers on patrol and searched. It was reported that nothing implicating was found on the two brothers except for their iPhones and handsets. But the police officer officers insisted on taking them to the station.
According to Ismail Jimoh, the police requested money for their bail when they got to the station and the two brothers said they had only a sum of #1500 with them. The other police officers suggested that the two should be released because there is nothing incriminating on them but the other officer refused as he objected that the two must pay for their bail.
So, the officer started beating his brother and in no time, he heard two gunshots. Then he saw his brother’s dead body on the floor.
It was also reported that the police officers took the victim to three hospitals but they were rejected as the victim is already dead.

She expressed shock that her husband was killed for no reason.
She called on the Rivers State Government, the Police authorities in the state, and well-meaning Nigerians to come to their aide.
“This act is very inhuman and also a capital violation of human rights”. said Prince Wiro, a famous human activist who expresses worry at the prevailing trend of policemen killing innocent citizens. Wiro called on the Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, to immediately open an investigation and should make it his responsibility to have the culprit face justice publicly.
Meanwhile, the Police Sergeant who carried out the dastardly act is in custody for debriefing and psychological evaluation. His Orderly Room Trial will commence in earnest, for possible arraignment
