Trigger-happy Air Force officers kill lecturer and his student for not identifying themselves


Nigerian Air Force personnel attached to the 211 Regiment of the NAF Base, Neze, Imo State, have allegedly shot dead a Computer Science lecturer of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede in Imo State, Okonye Nduka.

It was learnt that Nduka was killed by the trigger-happy military personnel while he was returning from a church programme last Monday, when the officers stopped him on the highway.


It was gathered that the military personnel thereafter shot the lecturer dead on the excuse that he refused to identify himself. Apart from Nduka, they also shot dead a former student of the polytechnic who was with the lecturer in the same vehicle.


The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), while strongly condemning the action of the military men, has called for an investigation into the killing of its member, Nduka.


ASUP on Thursday, January 28, in a statement by its Zone D Coordinator, Comrade Precious Nwakodo, also asked for the relocation of the NAF Base currently located close to the institution, saying the excesses of the military men had been a source of worry and conflict within the polytechnic community.


The union said it was not satisfied with the “excuses of mistaken identity” saying that Comrade Okonye and the other occupants of his vehicle were unarmed and never resisted arrest when the trigger-happy officers pointed guns at them. They also demanded that the deceased’s family be compensated. [Swipe]
