How Police Officer Allegedly Killed DSS Operative In Imo
An operator of the Department of State Services (DSS), known as Prince Nwachinaemere Ezemuonye Ozuzu, was allegedly shot dead by an unidentified police officer.
According to the deceased brother, Destiny Nwozuzu, the heinous crime took place on Monday at Mgbidi – Awo /Owerri Onitsha route in Imo State.
He stated the 38-year-old was shot four times by a police officer, not once as alleged by DSS officials, and not by unknown gunmen.
He also revealed that the father of four was shot on his right chest by a police officer on a joint taskforce team, who was trying to fire warning shots in response to the supposed gunmen alleged to be firing gunshots.
Another source who pleaded anonymity, told DAILY POST correspondent, that the deceased and his colleagues were shooting indiscriminately when a stray bullet hit the DSS officer.
Findings from DAILY POST revealed that the deceased was recently promoted.
DAILYPOST also gathered that some youths from Irete community in Owerri West, the deceased community were planning to stage a protest to the DSS office tomorrow morning to register their grievances.
The Imo State Police command, Michael Abattamwhen when contacted said,” I don’t have such information yet. If a police officer had killed somebody we should have known by now.”
The police spokesman said, “You can go to the DSS for further confirmation my brother.”
All efforts made to reach the DSS PRO proved abortive as DAILY POST correspondent was told that DSS does not have spokesperson at the state level.
