The Nigerian Senate has ordered investigation into the death and non-treatment of Linda Angela Igwetu, a corps member who was allegedly shot dead by a policeman in Abuja.
The Senate made this call during plenary after observing a minute silence for Miss Linda Igwetu.
The decision was communicated via the Senate official twitter handle.
According to The Nation, “She finished at work late at 11 p.m (Tuesday) and joined a few friends for a hangout before their passing out parade scheduled for Thursday (today).
“They left for home around 3 a.m (Wednesday) and was shot at shortly after the checkpoint near Ceddi Plaza by a police officer, identified as Benjamin Peters.
“The bullet hit Angela on her side, by the midriff, and she began losing blood in the open roof vehicle.
“She was rushed to the Garki Hospital but they would not treat her until they saw a police report, despite the fact that the police officers were present. While the deliberation was ongoing, Angela bled to death.”
