Inspector Samuel Timothy of the Nigeria Police has been sentenced to death by hanging for shooting and killing a sachet water dealer, Onyekachi Nwasouba.
According to The Punch, the ruling of Rivers State High Court is coming about five years after Nwasouba’s murder that happened on November 10, 2010 in Port Harcourt.
Nwasouba was branded an armed robber by the police while he was on his way to distribute his products to customers within the Port Harcourt metropolis.
Although the dealer was shouting that he was only a pure water producer and not an armed robber, a team of police officer led by Timothy shot him dead.
Delivering his judgment on Monday, September 28, Justice Adolphus Enebeli stated that the convict demonstrated an act of inhumanity through his action.
