    Sad! 34 Year Old Football Fan, Emmanuel Samuel Dies After Being Shot By A Policeman In Abuja

    Emmanuel Samuel

    In Abuja, a 34-year-old football fan,  Emmanuel Samuel was shot and killed by a police officer.

    On Sunday, July 11, Emmanuel Samuel went to a leisure location with his fiancée and pals to watch a football match when the incident occurred, according to Punch.

    According to the publication, the victim was leaving the club when the police officer shot him in the leg after warning him about accidental discharge.

    Veronica Samuel, his sister, said a local hospital refused to treat him without a police record. Her brother was escorted to a police station to collect the report, but the officers threatened to handcuff him, she said.

    The victim, according to Veronica, died eight days later.

    She told Punch: “My brother went to watch the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy with his fiancée and friends at the Emperor Garden in Saburi 1, Mopol Barracks. The police went to the place to arrest someone.

    “He was leaving the place at that point in time when he saw one of the policemen cocking his gun and pointing it in his direction. His friends said he told the policeman to be mindful of the way he was pointing the gun to avert accidental discharge which could kill people at the spot. He was leaving when a shot was fired.

    “The bullet hit him in his left lap from behind and came out in the front. Immediately, the police fled the scene. His fiancée and others took him to a hospital, but a police report was requested. They went to the police station in the area, but they refused to give a police report and threatened to handcuff my brother, who was in pain.

    “Instead of giving us the report, they referred us to an ill-equipped hospital close to the station. They went with us there and said he was in their custody and he would be handcuffed there. We resisted that.

    “When we discovered it was getting worse, we took him to the Gwagwalada Specialist Hospital, where he died on July 19. According to one of the doctors there, he could have been alive if he had better first aid. We went back to report his death at the station, but we were sent away.”

    A spokesperson for the FCT police, ASP Mariam Yusuf, said the command was investigating the matter and asked any member of the public who has information on the matter to come forward.
