Outrage as Police officer allegedly kills boy over N20 sachet water

Angry youths trooped out to the streets of Kabba in Kogi State on Saturday to protest the killing of a young boy by a Policeman over N20 sachet water.

According to reports, the irate youths, while chanting war songs, barricaded the Police station in Kabba despite efforts by security operatives to chase them with tear-gas.

Sources said the deceased met his untimely death when he took a sachet of water owned by the Policeman inside his car.

The State Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Egbuka, who confirmed the incident, argued that the suspected Police killer of the boy only defended himself when he had a fight with a victim of the deceased.
