Shedrack Ochoche, allegedly murdered
Shedrack Ochoche, allegedly murdered

The lawmaker representing the Benue South Senatorial District, Abah Moro, has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, over the killing of one Shedrack Ochoche who was allegedly tortured to death by some police officers in Abuja.

Shedrach, a former worker at a Chinese restaurant in the Jahi area of Abuja, was accused of stealing the car battery of his ex-boss, a Chinese woman popularly known as Madam Pimpim.

A family member of the deceased, Napoleon Otache, said the allegation came five days after he resigned from his job because he was owed for three months.

Outraged by the incident, many Nigerians on social media have demanded justice for the victim.

Moro, who vowed that there must be justice for late Ochoche asked the Nigeria Police Force to come out with a clear explanation of the controversy surrounding the death of Ochoche.

The petition read in part, “To ensure that justice is truly gotten for Shedrack Ochoche, I, today submitted a petition to the Inspector General Of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, over the gruesome murder of the young man. I also copied the Executive Secretary of the Human Rights Commission.

“Like I prayed in my petition to the Senate over the sad incident, I’m requesting that the IGP and Human Rights Commission ensure that, “The Nigeria Police Force comes up with an explanation as to why they murdered Mr Shedrack Ochoche over a frivolous allegation, which was baseless and without proof.

“Late Ochoche never confessed to the stealing of any battery and was not charged to or arraigned in any Court of competent jurisdiction but tortured to death over a mere allegation.

“To ensure that the men of the Nigeria Police Force who tortured and killed young Ochoche are identified and brought to book.

“Ensure the Nigeria Police Force takes full responsibility for the young struggling family Ochoche left behind.”
