A young man named Oliver Ezra Barawani has been allegedly shot and killed by a policeman in Taraba.

According to Facebook user Abainitus Akila Hamman, the deceased was allegedly shot by police at a checkpoint in Kpanti Napo near Jalingo on Monday, November 22.

At the time of the publication of this report, the details of the incident were still unclear, but it has been collected that a graduate of Taraba State University was driving with his boss, Liu, the district chairperson of the local government when the incident happened.

He was taken to the hospital, where he was certified dead.

Abainitus wrote;

“Oliver Ezra Gone too Soon! He was shot by a police officer at a checkpoint in Kpanti Napo, near the city of Jalingo. Until his death, he was a Graduate Of Taraba State University.

“He is the Son of one of the pioneer Pastors Of EKAN Muri / UMCN’s Late Rev. Ezra Barawani. His mother Mrs. Rhoda Barawani is a renowned retire Teacher and Women Leader in UMC.

“OLIVER Ezra was brutally killed for nothing. He was driving alongside the executive chairman of Lau LGA between Lakaviri and Jalingo. He was unarmed, innocent, and calm.

“Nigerian Police brutality has continued unabated! Instead of them dealing with the rising criminal element in society, they kill innocent Nigerians.

“The police authorities are quiet about the rising criminality of the police on our roads and other public places. Most of our officers are Drug addicts and work under the influence of illegal substances. Taraba Youths Must demand justice.”

Meanwhile, friends, colleagues, youths, and many others have taken to Facebook to demand justice for the victim.
