THIS IS VERY SADDENING
People that are meant to save lives and properties are the ones taking it.
A young man, early thirties, was in a moment ago shot dead in cold blood for no reason in Tarzan Nkpor idemili north LGA Anambra State. Someone's son,probably someone's husband and father, A young man full of life. His only crime was explaining to a police escort of a political party the reason Why he took time to park well for them to have their way. Is this enough reason to kill a man? Is shooting him the best objective? Now his life is cut shot. His dreams and struggles gone. His people now in sorrow. It's high time something is done against all this illiterates in uniform that goes about killing people.
This one was a policeman. Enough is enough, youths need to rise up. Rip young man. The police carried his corpse later this night after scarring the raging youths away by sporadic shootings,they also tolled his Toyota Camry away.
