placards with inscriptions, such as : “ Commissioner of Police should be redeployed,Police protect us, don't kill us, Our father is a farmer, not an armed robber, SSS should conduct investigation, Know Your rights, we say no to oppression and extra judicial killings of citizens.
We went to Edo State House of Assembly , Government House and Press Centre to register our protest and resentment.
The Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Uyi Igbe said the House would look into the issue of the alleged extra judicial killing. We are optimistic that Dei Gratia we shalll get justice. It was Ibrahim Momodu Yesterday, and Sameul Imiakop today, who knows the next victim? That is why we must all rise to the occasion to collectively agitate for these fatherless children and widows who need our help. It is only a moron that will say, I am not the person that is being oppressed, hence I need to silent. We say caboodle rejectamenta to extra judicial killing of the aminu kano's talakawa.
