CLO seeks penalty for corporal over driver’s murder

Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar

THE Civil Liberties Organisation has called on the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, to bring to justice a police corporal, Sunday Edeh, who allegedly stabbed to death a commercial bus driver, Kingsley Oshimini.

The CLO also urged police authorities to pay the sum of N200m to the family of the deceased to cushion the effect of their son’s murder in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

It said, Oshimini, who was living at 25, Freetown Street, Port Harcourt, was stabbed with a dagger by Edeh while controlling traffic at the NNPC Mega Filling Station, near Lagos Bus-stop.

The CLO stated that Oshimini was immediately taken to Braithwaite Memorial Hospital, where he died the following day.

Spokesman of the CLO in Rivers State, Mr. Livingstone Wechie, urged the IGP not to allow the matter be swept under the carpet as the family of the deceased had continued to cry for justice.

Efforts made by our correspondent to reach the Assistant State Police Public Relations Officer, Grace Iringe-Koko, to react to the matter, proved futile as several calls and a text message to her mobile phone were not replied.
