Family alleges extra-judicial killing by police

The family of Stanley Etim, 23, allegedly slain by the police at the weekend in Calabar is demanding jus­tice through the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Suile­man Abba.

Representative of the family, Supol Arit Nyong, claims the deceased was beaten to dead by policemen attached to `D5` in Calabar.

Arit Nyong, Chief Super­intendent of Prisons, Medi­cals, Aunty to the deceased told Daily Times in Cala­bar on Sunday that unless killers of their son were brought to book, the offi­cers involved in the matter would know no peace.

“I am shocked that the policemen who killed our son can still have the te­merity to ask the deceased family to hands off or bail the corpse claiming the de­ceased was a robber… She lamented,

“… What right has the killer officers to murder our son when his guilt had not yet been proved. If they feel he committed the of­fence, they ought to have allowed justice to prevail,” she insisted insisted.
