As protests against police brutality continue across the country, a woman, Ebohon Egbe Rebecca from Edo state, recounted how her 22-year-old brother was allegedly killed by the police in 2013 after labelling him a robber, an allegation that was cleared years later.

Taking to Facebook on Saturday, Rebecca recalled how her mother went to a police station to report her son missing. Unknown to her, he had been allegedly killed and buried by the police.

After series of protests led by activist Kola Edokpayi, her brother’s corpse was exhumed and in 2017 after the court declared the deceased innocent, he was finally buried by the family.

Read her post below: 

“Momodu Ibrahim was our General. He was murdered by the Nigeria police on 27th May, 2013 at the age of 22. And buried by the police on the 28th May, 2013. The police wrote a letter to the LG office stating that he was a criminal who was caught at the scene of a robbery operation ( … my Brother was not a criminal), before going to bury him. (I read that letter then)

On 29th May, 2013, my Mother went to Textile Mill road police station to report that her son was missing (without knowing that he has been buried )… we later got to know that we will never see him again.

On 30th May, 2013, Kola Edokpayi, Pharez Okpere, and Yusuf Bukhari came to pay us a condolence visit, we told them the story and it didn’t sit well with them. They raised alarm. There was a massive protest and my Brother was exhumed and kept in the morgue for 3 years while the case was ongoing.

He was finally buried in 2017.
Barr. Jefferson Uwoghiren stood solidly for us free of charge to see that my Brother get justice and I am grateful that my Brother’s name was cleared that he was not a robber.
As I live with the pains of his murder and how it happened, I always wish that those who had a hand in his death will never live a peaceful life.
