Another case of extra-judicial killing by the police has reared its head after a man posted on social media how the police murdered his brother in Port Harcourt.

As much as the Nigeria Police Force has been trying to let Nigerians know they are friendly and their main job is protect lives and properties of the citizenry, many are still sceptical of their claim that they are friends of the public.

Another of such questions were raised with the alleged killing of a 27-year-old young man identified as Iyke Ogbonnaya, by the police on Sunday, August 7, 2016, at about 10am, after he was arrested following a fight that broke out in their area in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State.

The victim's brother, Kalu Ogbonnaya, took to his Facebook page to bemoan the fate that befell his family with the killing of his brother over what he did not know about.


This is what Kalu wrote:

"My fellow Nigerians, you people should see what the Nigeria police has done to my beloved brother, Iyke ogbonnaya."

Is the police truly friends of the masses?»
