Ebem OHAFIA ON FIRE. .As a police man killed a guy because settlement  last night as about 9pm.

 Abia State , Nigeria.

A notable young man by name Friday,, was shut dead yesterday by unknown police officer.As about 9pm yesterday being friday 17th April 2020.

The unknown police officer ran away, the youth of the community are all in search for him.

This brought the anger of the community and the whole youth at large, the DPO's  house, police station, the Court, cars and all perosners were all set free due to this conflict happing right now ..

Ohafia is a known community that is as peaceful as always,the question is why then is all this things happening to a place of peace? 

They asked us to stay at home because of Covid 19,without food ,light and other basic amenities.,

They were suppose to protect us but the killed us ,they are killing my people and threatened to rape our daughters and mothers .

Covid 19 is not killing us ,.rather hunger and police/soldiers are killing our youths ,the leaders of tomorrow.Oh my goodness!!!were do we go from here ? Lord please protect our fathers our youths and our mothers and the children .Shine your love upon us and heal our land please.

May the gentle soul of the young man rest in peace..

Hello Dear Helen,

This is indeed very alarming, and sad. Are you saying that we shot because he was out after curfew? Wow! I'm not surprised the community is up in arms over this. Thanks for sharing this, and bringing awareness to this situation, and challenging time.

I hope you're safe, and well, dear.

Dear Helen,
This is so very sad. The tragedies of police brutality compounding with issues like these are always heartbreaking. So very sorry. I hope the unknown officer is traced and held accountable and that the revenge of the angry youths does not plunge the community into unrest and more problems this difficult time.
Please stay safe.

Hello Dear Hellen,
This is very sad. May his soul rest in eternal peace and may the perpetrator be brought to justice. It is very sad that the lockdown in many countries has very severe effects on the different communities. Many of us feel that the effects are most likely to kill people more than the disease.
Thank for you sharing and please take good care of yourself and be safe during this very difficult period.

Dear Helen,
Thank you so sharing the condition. Its really sad and so painful that hunger is killing huge population than COVID-19. Here in our country, lots of daily wage workers are in same condition, they are not being able to work and also due to their condition, no food for survive. They are going to their remote village on their food with hunger and thirst. We all people are offering our small help in the community with immediate food and water. There are also mismatch of demand and supply of food. The farmers from village are not being able to send their food in market and people in market are also not being able to access food supplies. Some people also hoard the foods. So there are going very bad condition in world. Please do take care and stay safe my sister.
Love and regards, anjana
