Angry mob torches police station over killing of youth in Imo

One of abducted RCCG pastors regains freedom

Enraged by the alleged of one of their own by a policeman, a mob of angry youths in Umuoke community, Obowo in Imo State on Monday, set a police station in the town ablaze.

According to eyewitness, the rampaging youths were inflamed by the killing of one Ikenna Ogbunigwe by a police officer in the town on Monday. The youth burnt down the police station.

The slain Ogbunigwe, an indigene of Umuoke, Obowo in the Obowo Local Government Area of the state was confirmed dead at the Mercy Hospital in Umuoke after he was rushed to the hospital by some youths.

Following Ogbunigwe’s death the youths stormed the police station, carting away firearms and other exhibits at the station and releasing detainees.

The Divisional Police Officer was said to have been taken to safety by his colleagues after the mob attempted to lynch him.

The eye-witness, who begged to conceal his identity, disclosed that Ogbunigwe’s corpse was taken to the police station in protest before the station was set ablaze.

He said  that trouble ensued when Ogbunigwe confronted the police officer over a minor argument at a restaurant in the town.

The source said that the police officer pulled his trigger on the deceased, shooting sporadically when other youths tried to apprehend him over the killing of the young man.

The Imo State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Mr Orlando Ikeokwu, said he was yet to be briefed on the development.
