The family of the National Youth Service Corps member shot dead by a police officer, Angela Igwetu, has told the police authorities to go after the hospital that attended to the corps member, saying the autopsy report faulted the claims made by the hospital.
It was reported that the 23-year-old had finished work about 11pm on Wednesday, July 4, 2018, and joined a few friends at a hang–out before their Passing out Parade scheduled for the following day.
The group were reportedly on their way home around 3am when Angela was shot at a checkpoint immediately after Ceddi Plaza by a police officer, identified as Benjamin Peters.
She was subsequently rushed to the General Hospital, Garki, where she eventually gave up the ghost around 6am.
However, Angela’s sister, Chinenye Igwetu, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone on Sunday, said the hospital’s claim that it administered immediate medical aid to the deceased was at variance with what the autopsy report revealed.
She also said her late sister was not properly examined, saying her organs were not affected by bullet. She added that the pipes inserted into her sister by the hospital broke her rib cage.
