Nigeria: The Nigeria Police, on Friday, received a report of a talented young man was allegedly beaten to death by unknown persons in Abuja. His friend shared the following story on his Facebook page.
His friend mentioned, “I’m not sure anyone has been arrested for the crime. I’m also wondering why he will be buried days after without an autopsy to ascertain the real cause of death. Life!”
As per his friend’s narrative, he died on Wednesday, and that was a sad day for him and for others too. At about 11:17 am on Wednesday, he received the news of the murder of Greg Godwin, a.k.a Gregson Grego, on Facebook. Greg was a friend and brother in the PG family choir.
Greg Godwin left his home on Tuesday night in order to join the vigilantes on duty in his area, Sunny vale Estate, Abuja. Moments later, one of them ran to his wife, stating that her husband, Greg, had been beaten up mercilessly.
When she reached the location, she found her husband in the pool of his own blood. He was lifeless. There is a huge conspiracy, a calculated cover-up going on at the moment by the team on duty. His corpse has been deposited at the Gwagwalada teaching hospital mortuary by the police.
His family is demanding justice for Greg, as well as justice for his wife, children and the entire family of Greg.
Greg’s friend said, “Nigeria police force must unravel the authorship of the gruesome murder of Mr Greg. Let it not be part of the usual statistics of persons killed in Nigeria.”
Recent years have seen an alarming increase in crime in Nigeria. From violent attacks to kidnapping, robberies and cybercrime, the country has been facing a major security crisis. The police, government and citizens are all struggling to address this issue.
