Justice! Police Officer To Die By Hanging 3 Years After Killing 20-Year Old Man

A police officer, Mathew Egheghe, attached to the Bayelsa State Police Command, is to die by hanging for killing a 20-year-old man, Victor Emmanuel three years ago. The Police officer shot Emmanuel at a checkpoint nine times in Yenagoa on October 16, 2011. He was later charged to court after Emmanuel’s mother refused to listen to their pleas and insisted she must get justice over the death of her son.

Referring to the report of the pathologist and the evidence he gave before the court, the judge said that nine bullets had entry and exit points on the body of the deceased. The pathologist certified the cause of death to multiple gunshot injuries, adding that five of the bullets hit the deceased in the head.


The judge however sentenced him to death by hanging after finding him guilty. “I have listened to the pleas of the defence counsel but the accused person deserved a sentence to die by hanging,” he said.
