Man drowns in river to evade arrest
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man had drowned in a river while trying to evade an arrest.
According to Punch, the Police suddenly appeared and began shooting into the air, while the deceased was playing with his friends around 4pm.
Legit.ng gathered that as people scampered for safety, Oge ran into the river to evade arrest. However, he could not swim and consequently died.
After the policemen left, some youths reportedly realised that Oge had died, and began to protest. They subsequently took the body of the deceased to the Diobu Police Division and later to the Braithwaite Memorial Specialist Hospital, where he was confirmed dead by doctors.
