April 15, 2015 –  Pictures: Nigerian Navy Officer Killed, Beaten To Death By Okada Riders In Abuja, Family Says He’s Wrongly Accused Of Robbery

The promising navy officer pictured above, Commander Awi Samuel Ugodi from Oori town in Benue state has been burnt alive.

He was mistaken for a robber by a angry mob of Okada riders in Abuja recently.

Samuel and his brother were burnt to death before they could defend themselves against the allegations.

This is what a relative of the deceased sent to the media today:

“He is my brother  the whole of my village is thrown into mourning right now. He was in the company of his younger brother to go get fuel. He arrived at a police check point and the police on duty told him to stop because of the robbery going on; I don’t know why he just drove past the police. The okada people ran after him, seeing that he stopped for them, the next thing was to drag him out of his vehicle together with his younger brother, beat them up to the point of death and set them ablaze.It happened in Abuja on his way to kaduna. His name is Awi Samuel Ugbodi. So painful and can’t just stop crying.”

Heyah!!! what a painful death, this jungle justice of a thing is going out of hand in Nigeria.

May God give his wife and children the fortitude to bear his untimely loss.

May his gentle soul and that of his brother rest in peace (amen).

    This is so painful. Those responsible should be brought to book. However, we can learn from the incident that we should not be sturborn and listen to advice.

    This is the reason why Okada should be banned entirely in Abuja and its environs. If Cities like Port Harcourt, Edo and other smaller towns will succeed in banning Okada, why should a whole FCT not do the same. These Okadas has done more evil than good, sent so many men and women to their early grave including my own senior brother. This is the more reason while i hate Okada with passion. FCT Minister, please take note and do something urgently about it.

    Discriminating, underrating, superiority, negleting of law over immunity in mis-used of power killed the victim, had been he is not an officer he would have wait like other civilian when police has him to stop but we do underate police in nigeria especially if we are a politician or govt. Official, may their gentle soul rest in peace, may god console their family.

    No one is to be blamed. Just let’s warn the civilians not to take law into their hands because the military men(the deceased military personnels) would have killed and injured both innocent and guilts of that environment after the incident.
