For his failure to admit that he owns a gun, a student has been beaten to death by cops in Nigeria.
The deceased, a microbiology graduate of Delta State University, Abraka has been identified as Oghenetejiri Omiragua, known widely as TJ. It was gathered that the deceased was allegedly beaten to death by police officers attached to the RRS in Asaba, Delta State.
A source who pleaded the condition of anonymity revealed that the unfortunate incident happened on Thursday, April 29, 2021.
“They arrested this guy and his girlfriend at a hotel gate in Asaba. Then they asked him to admit to owning a gun which he vehemently refused and he was brutally beaten till he died.
After killing him, they took his girlfriend (who had earlier written in a statement that she was from Lagos) to the motorpark and gave her money to leave Delta state and never return. They proceeded to dump his corpse in an unknown location.
Unfortunately for the policemen, the girlfriend of the deceased didn’t travel but instead went back and informed TJ’s friends about the whole ordeal. The police denied that such ever happened until they were petitioned by a lawyer and they said he died from an ailment,” the source told reporters.
