September 28, 2015 – Nigerian Police Inspector Sentenced To Death By Hanging For Killing Pure Water Seller In Port Harcourt Rivers State In 2010

A Nigerian police officer has been given death sentence for an offence he committed in 2010.

The convict , a Port Harcourt-based Police Inspector was sentenced to death by Justice Enebeli of the Rivers State High Court today for allegedly killing a pure water business owner in front of his shop in Port  Harcourt.

35-year-old Onyekachi Nwasuruba was shot at point blank by trigger happy Inspector Timothy Samuel who only had 2 years to retire at the time of the murder.

Despite pleas by his lawyer, Justice Adolphus Enebeli insisted that he has no power to remove the death sentence .

“According to section 319 of the Constitution of Nigeria, I don’t have the power to reduce your sentence, that you Inspector Timothy Samuel be hanged on your neck until you are pronounced dead, – Justice Enebeli ruled today in Port Harcourt.

The convict, a married father of five children has been dismissed from the force.

    Thanks Justice Enebeli for the excellent judicious verdict on this case. There are some morons out there who think they can take people’s life because they are in uniform. That is craziness. How can you pull a trigger and shoot at this individual and take his life just for pride or to proof that you are an inspector of police. Even if this guy has committed the most grievance offense, all you have to do is to effect the arrest and let judiciary take it from there. You are a law enforcer not a killer. What do you think will happen to the deceased family since you have murdered their breadwinner? We need to think about aftermath of our action before we dare to do it.
