Corps Member Dies During Shiite And Police Clash In Abuja

This is so sad!!!!!






Channels TV has announced the death of its reporter shot during the clash between the police and Shiite protesters in Abuja.

The reporter, Precious Owolabi was working with the TV station as a member of the National Youth Service Corps.
The 23-year-old died of a gunshot wound he sustained while covering the clash between the police and the Shiite protesters on Monday in Abuja.

The management and staff of Channels Television are saddened by his demise and pray that God will grant his family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss, and avail his soul eternal rest.

Owolabi was the second death to be announced in connection with clash in Abuja today between Shiite protesters and the police

The police earlier said they lost a deputy commissioner, Usman Umar who was in charge of Operations, FCT Command.
He was immediately rushed to the hospital but died moments later while receiving treatment.

Two Assistant Superintendents of Police were also injured, the police spokesman said.

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria claimed that 11 protesters were killed.

  2. This is so sad! Just imagine this promising young man and several others lost their lives trying to earn a living.

    I don't understand why this govt is so adamant. Why are they still holding onto the Shiite leader when the courts has pronounced his release.

    Which way Nigeria?...

    1. Go and find out what the matter has done and is capable of, before you start asking why they're holding him oh.

  3. When I watched the video online, I wept. How did we get to this point as a people? I read somewhere that a deputy police commissioner was also shot death by the protesters. The way people were falling down after been hit by bullets got me wondering, what kind of Nigeria or system do we have today?.

    Mr President should allow this man exercise his bail right as granted by different courts and also supported by the National Assembly. This would have avoided so many bloodshed and death we are seeing today. What is the government afraid of with this man? Since they disobeyed court orders and kept him incommunicado, has it stop the movement rascality?

    I am beginning to understand the magnanimity of the mess Mr President plunged Nigeria into. Sad enough, he has no solution to it. Too bad if you asked me.

    1. Obasanjo would have done better. Things wouldn't have gotten this bad in the first place.

    2. Stop it, please! Stop it, stop it!!! Obasanjo that extinguished Odi and sold Bakassi? Have you seen the indignity of the Bakassi people till now that I'm writing this? Do you know what it's like to be a refugee in your own land? Please, it's too early in the morning for the ignorance you're displaying.

    3. Blackberry...pls,,let's just stop this ...it's early and I don't want us to start arguing...

    4. Obasanjo sold bakassi? The joke is on you. Now I understand the damages the obliteration of history in Nigeria have caused. Go and read or ask people to tell you how bakassi became a negotiating factor during the war. Those who signed the agreement and to what purpose. Do you know after the war ended, Nigeria reneged on the said bakassi land as earlier agreed? It was the court that judged in Cameroon favour.

      Taking about Odi Massacre, do you know what actually happened? Maybe you only know about the massacre without the cause of it. Though I frown at the killings of locals in Bayelsa. That incident I doubt if it was avoidable consedering what led to it.

    5. Obj? Do better? Have you been to bakassi? It's too early biko.

    6. And odi would have been something else now if not for timely intervention... Lost of innocent lives regrettable though.

      Delete
    7. Sealord, you know better. People will only talk about the army brutality but won't talk about the cause of the massacre. Even though it was an onslaught taken too far and regrettable, I still repeat and maintain, it was unavoidable. Obasanjo surely knows how to handle crisis.

  7. Oh my God. This is so sad. Just like that. A promise unfulfilled 😭😭

    1. He is being accused of having and sponsoring an Islamic sect capable of destablizing the unity of Nigeria. The sects once attacked the convoy of the army chief at Kaduna or so. These are I believe necessitated his arrest.

  9. A deputy police commissioner was also killed. He was trying to calm down the situation.

    I am not a big fan of some Nigerian police, but killing law enforcement people is the height of these nuisance fighting for their evil leader's release.

    1. I am telling you. I don't know why baba is like this..
      For these fearless guys to go as close as to National assembly gate and chanting baba is useless and what have you. What does that tell you?!🀦‍♀️
      He should better do the needful.

    2. Exactly. They won't be labelled terrorist because they aren't from the south. Have you seen any violent group labelled terrorist except boko haram? Even when boko haram was labelled by international communities, the northern elites frown at it. Just yesterday, about 157 boko haram detainee were released and rehabilitated into the society. Do you now see the country we live in?

  12. Another avoidable death but buhari being insensitive to human lives,cares less if more people are killed. What's the essence of keeping this man when the court of law has granted him bail?

  13. Very sad. They killed about six of the useless shiite guys too that burnt down the NEMA stationed vehicle. Saw it on my way back from work.
    Those guys dont value their lives at all. Gosh!

  15. I don't think that was a peaceful protect, it was a violent one.
    My advice to people is, be very careful joining a mass protest, some unfortunate people will abuse the opportunity to cause mayhem and our law enforcement agents will have no option but to apply maximum force.
    Our security services are not well trained and equipped to manage protest.

    1. You said it better. Nigeria security force don't know how to manage protest fairly.

  18. many lives and property were destroyed during yesterday's clash. When will all these end for Christ sake? RIP to those that lost their lives.

  19. People that cover crisis/war scenes should be taught how to take covers when the fight becomes fierce.CNN reporters am sure are trained before they cover dangerous areas because we even see them taking covers. I wonder why Channels Tv sent a corper of all their reporters,what experience or training did he acquire to do such?
