"NIGERIA POLICE FORCE KILLED AN INNOCENT MAN IN ABAVO TODAY:

A policeman serving at Abavo Police Division, in Ika South L.G.A of Delta State, pushed an Abavo youth who was standing by the roadside waiting to cross to the others side, onto an oncoming lorry ascending from the Warri axis of Agbor/Warri Express Road.

The policemen had ran through the walk lane trying to block the oncoming lorry but when it did not stop, one of them pushed Festus Ozuor to the oncoming lorry

The victim died few hours after the incident. Right now, there is commotion at the Divisional Police Station at Abavo, as the youths have barricaded the road, making motorists and commuters to take alternative routes out of the town.

Abavo youths seek for justice calling on Commissioner of Police to investigate the matter. The DPO of Abavo Police Station also agreed with the youth that the policeman who pushed Festus Ozuor is from his division."
