    Av said this and am saying it again we have to take the bull by d horn for this country to knw peace. We need revolution in this country. These animals called police are so useless that nothing good can neva erupt from their organization. All in the name of N50 they've killed innocent soul struggling to make ends meet to cater for himself and his family and with this no justice wud be done. Nigerian Police i bet u ur days are numbered. Awon oloshi. Whoeva shot this man will neva knw peace for d rest of his life.

    he is my neighbour, a very quiet and peaceful man wit two kids, I was sitting outside wit him on sunday 27th dec, and he asked why has has not been seeing me in church and I told him i atended first mass becos he attended second mass wit family same day but I never new, that day was going to be the last day I will see him, It happened on 28th dec because that was the day we heard the wife screaming at 11pm that night that the husband has been killed by police and we all rushed out that night crying too, so sad he has to end up this way leaving children between the ages of three and one year respectively.

    Nigeria...our beloved country has finally turned into a land of anarchy. Citizens do not love one another. Lawlessness,wickedness is the order of the day. The Nigerian Police Force has turned on the people they are duty bound to protect.
    We the people of Nigeria need to rise up and act, we need to pray, we need to cooperate to help our land, we must to do something. It is our fathers' land, Foreigners will not help us, Heaven help those who help themselves. We must eschew wickedness, corruption, bad governance, crimes..No action is insignificant. We must do something. I will try to the limits of my abilities!
    RIP young man..May Almighty God give your family the fortitude to bear the great loss.

    The person in the picture is my brother Mr Nzenwa Augustine Chinagorom. He was shot by the police in Rumuola and died in his own pool of blood like a common criminal. The police is yet to make an official statement concerning the matter but they should be rest assured as the family is suing big time.

    considering the kind of criminality present in the south, i can not blame the police for firing at a car that refuses to stop when ordered to, that is going by the facts available here. in this day and age you have to comport yourself with any policeman carrying a gun, to be on the safe side.

    This type of behaviour is the reason i dont feel sorry for the Nigerian Policemen when they are killed by Robbers. They are very greedy and wicked and deserve to die like Chickens...

    Such an un-necessary waste of life... All for N50.

    Nonsense.

    uhm!!! Here's the thing... Does it make any sense that an innocent civilian is killed by the same armed forces that are supposed to protect him? Only is Nigeria that you see this level of incompetence in the armed forces.. Not only is the governemtn crap, the armed forces and security is crap. Now people are killing each other and using religion to a basis for this (Boko Haram).. It's simple... The country is lost and so immersed in corruption and even insanity on every level.. Unless something is done and fast.. The country will not change.. It'll only get worse... RIP!!!

    Is like the NPF needs blood to continue to exist, especially innocent blood. God, see how wickedness has increased. Maybe we should
    change their uniform to red, so we know what they stand for, because, I cannot think of any other thing(s) the NPF do best than killing innocent people.

    the person who said they don't blaim the police for shooting is very stupid. so what if the crime rate is high? you dont just dispose ammunition like that. what if there were kids in the car hunh? then what? such reckless behaviour.

    If the taxi didn't stop, why didn't they

    1. Jump into their own vehicle and pursue them?

    2. Shoot at the tires to stop them?

    These fools meant to kill, that was their only mission. Pple should stop making it seem like the police had good intentions.

    Did they ever stop and think that innocent passengers were in the car? All the police men involved should die by firing squad.

    Am surprised at some peoples response regarding this issue,some are saying only if the driver has stopped this wouldnt av happened(trying to justify the shooting in a way).Such a tot is Gross Rubbish and only shows the level of decadence in the average Nigerian Mindset...so just cos a taxi refuses to stop that gives a policeman the right to shoot?? an example of this happened in the states less dan a week ago..4 guys broke into a store and carted away and ATM all the police could do was chased after them for sometime immediately the guys drove into an area that was populated with people( which mins pple could easily be knocked down if the chase was to continue)..the policemen stopped chasing then and stated that they stopped for "safety reasons" and later announced on that anyone that has any info about the robbers should contact the nearest station.These were guys that were caught on security camera loading an ATM into a van and not a single shot was fired truout the chase.This man ere was never a robber neither did our trigger happy policemen notice anytn incriminating in the vehicle in which he was in...so,ow do u explain shooting at the vehicle???It's simple...we have lost value for human life in Nigeria..I weep for my dear Nation.

    I am very sad at the kind of response i see here,how can anyone justify this action? Some say if only the driver had stopped?"na wah for una o", why are there road blocks in the first place? Thought road blocks where erected in counties at war?are we at war?in naija road blocks are erected to intimidate and kill law abiding citizens while the criminals go scott free,not to mention the myraid of accidents they cause on the death traps we ccall roads with all those items the police mount on the highway yet we say this is a democracy RIP Mr Augustine Chinagorom may ur death not go unpunished*smh* its very sad
