A sad event occurred at a burial ceremony in Delta state recently as a policeman lost his life in the hands of a Soldier.
The police officer, simply identified as Mr. Imomoh slumped and died after receiving a punch to the chest from a soldier.
trouble started when a group of soldiers started shooting sporadically in the air at the burial event and Imomoh, who was wearing plain clothes at the time approached one of the soldiers and advised them to stop shooting at the event because it was dangerous.
This reportedly angered the soldier, who then punched the man directly on the chest. Imomoh wanted to retaliate but was quickly held back by bystanders. As he proceeded to leave the scene, he suddenly slumped and died on the spot. On seeing what had happened, all the soldiers who were at the event fled.
An investigation will soon be launched to fish out the culprits.
