Please guys help me retweet my last retweet. My little sister was shot dead by the police this morning in Abuja.
I just want justice for my sister!!! She was a Corper and meant to pass out tomorrow!
Nigerian rapper, Falz has reacted to the death of the NYSC member who was gunned down by a police officer just one day to her passing out.
If somebody has a gunshot wound and they are brought to your hospital, you are supposed to treat them, not ask for any f*cking police report. Even if na suspected armed robber, Who are you to deprive them of the right to stay alive? Let the court pass judgment.

user @uzorahanotu gave more insight on the tragic incident, saying:
So my friends are out last night, passed by a checkpoint but didn’t stop. One of the police guy raises his gun and opens fire on the car and the bullet hits Angela on her side, by the midriff.
Angela is rushed to the Garki hospital but they wouldn’t treat her pending police report. The policemen are present, so what’s stopping them? They needed ₦50K which want readily available. And it was in this moment Angela bled to death.
The police is very mad. They said she was screaming “help me, kidnappers”, like how does your colleague that drops you everyday from work want to kidnap you?
And she was supposed to pass out from NYSC tomorrowDo you ever witness anything interesting or exciting? Just take out your phone and send us the exclusive pictures or video and we will pay you cash.
