Sorry I have to add my first ever graphic images
Please be warnedPolice unit attached to a particular post has decided to work extra
hours by blocking a good portion of the Onitsha/Enugu express road ( I
heard they were not assigned to work there ).
While claiming to control traffic, they extended their “charity” duty by doing “usual usual”.
A 911 Heavy duty tipper that lost it’s brake, only wanted follow the
free way since “police is your friend” block half of the road hit this
innocent pregnant woman who were coming back from hospital, a keke and
Riot of course followed immediately,
the angry mob and some opportunists started destroying properties,
Houses on fire,
I saw over 5 generators been moved,
Car engine stolen,
Hilux got burnt,
People started robbing people,
I managed to escape with 2 of my phones
One of the policemen were caught, after an attempt to gun down an
“odesi” guy who corrected his gun and disappear. He was beaten to “odi
ndu, okwu ka mma” but not killed.
Few moments later, the SARS intervened and the HANDS UP follows and I got home.
