According g to Omoni: “Sergeant Osaiah, said to be attached to the Rivers Task Force on Decongestion, has been arrested, disarmed and undergoing Orderly Room Trial.

“Two other members of the Task Force have also been arrested and being questioned.

“The Hilux vehicle belonging to the Task Force has been impounded, the corpse of the Woman Sergeant deposited in the mortuary.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph G. Mukan, has ordered an investigation into the matter with a view to unravelling the circumstances that led to her death.

“The CP appeals for calm, pending the outcome of the investigation, promising that justice must be served in the circumstance.”

The deceased was only reportedly appealing to operatives of the Task Force Against Congestion to stop destroying wares of defiant traders before Ossaiah shot her dead.
