Ugo Ozuah was allegedly shot by men of the Nigerian police force in front of the UPS office on the Gbagada Express way on Thursday September 20th. He died early this morning at a hospital in Lagos. Ugo just got married last Saturday September 15th, 2012.
Details as to what really happened that Thursday night are sketchy but according to friends of the late businessman, he was at the expressway with another friend trying to flag down a taxi around 9 at night, when policemen pulled up and shot him twice in the chest at close range. They said he was not resisting arrest, he wasn’t arguing with the police, he was not asked to identify himself, he was just standing there with a friend and got killed for no reason.
The IG of police has said the men that killed the newly married man were not policemen, but they were wearing police uniform, so who were they?
This is truly sad, and quite unfortunate! I can’t even imagine what his wife would be going through now. Hopefully, Ugo’s family will get justice for this senseless killing!
