A 16-year-old student Randle Secondary School, Apapa, Emmanuel Chukwu, has been killed by a police sergeant attached to Badia Police Station.

The incident occurred last Saturday. Father of the deceased, Uzor Chukwu, was said to have travelled to Ebonyi State to bury his uncle, while his son was shot dead by police in Lagos.

It was learnt that Emmanuel was asleep at their apartment, about 8a.m. at No, 7 Fadaina Street, when he heard the noise of protesters calling on policemen at their station to release a woman accused of kidnapping a toddler.

The police had rescued the suspected kidnapper at Giwa Street when she was about to be set ablaze by some angry youths and took her to their station at Badia.

But the youth went with the policemen to their station, demanding the suspect be released to them. Emmanuel went to the balcony to see what was happening, when he was hit by a stray bullet from a policeman trying to disperse the crowd.

The distraught mother of the deceased, Ijeoma Chukwu, described the policemen as cruel and heartless human beings.
