A young man simply identified as Nyebuchi has been allegedly stabbed to death by a police officer identified as Chinedu.
Some yet to be identified police officers also subsequently shot two persons, Gladstone and Turuchi at Atali/Elimgbu Police station Rivers state.
A report of the ugly incident was shared on Twitter by a prominent Nigerian musician popularly recognised as Ruggedman.
His tweet: "Nyebuchi was stabbed to death minutes ago by a @PoliceNG officer called Chinedu. Precious Gladstone & Turuchi were subsequently shot by officers at Atali/Elimgbu Police station Rivers state."
Details of the incident are still scanty as at the time of filing this report.
The recurrent rate of extra-judicial killings by the police has re-ignited the call by Nigerians not only reform the notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) but the entire police structure.
