Nenadi Usman’s Family Petitions Inspector General of Police, Over Murder of The Minister’s Daughter By Police
The family of Nenadi Usman, has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over the killing of 31-year-old Anita Akapson, daughter of the former minister, Nenadi Usman.
The family writing through their lawyer Kayode Ajulo, said; Akapson “was trailed, targeted, intercepted, her vehicle brushed, blocked and shot at close range by a police officer at Katampe District, Abuja.”
The police was said to have mistaken her for a suspected car thief, “The SP fired at the car thinking it was the suspect that was driving out and the woman was hit by bullets. She was rushed to Gwarimpa General Hospital where she died,” said senior police officer.
The petition read in part, “The circumstances of the trailing, tracking and gruesome murder of the deceased who had a strong affinity with Senator Nenadi Usman, a member of the leading opposition political party in Nigeria, and who is presently facing continuous prosecutions from the state, calls for thorough and comprehensive investigation.”
“Given the level of intimidation of opposition by the instrumentalities of the state, our clients are worried as to the intent or possible calculated assassination of the deceased to further cause anguish to the family.”
