See Photos Of Man Shot Dead By Soldier For Disobeying Lockdown Order

Recall that a youth leader Joseph Pessu was shot dead today by a soldier at Ada Val Arenyenka street, along the Ugbuwangue axis of the NPA Expressway, Warri, Delta State for disobeying the lockdown order. The incident happened at about 9:40 am on Thursday, April 2, while the victim was riding his power bike. 
According to reports, Joseph Pessu, who was
out of his home during the lockdown, was flagged down by a team of security operatives but he allegedly refused to stop for proper identification and this resulted in a chase.
Sources around the scene of the incident said the officers fired gunshots at Pessu’s bike tires during the chase before one officer shot the father-of-two dead. 
The victim, pictured wearing a white shirt and red trousers, was drenched in blood as locals flocked the scene before taking him to the Police Area Command, Warri. The man’s death angered youths in the area and they took to the streets to protest despite the 14-days stay-at-home order. The chairman of Warri South council area, Dr. Michael Tidi, alongside a political leader in the locality, Chief
 Vincent Okudolor, intervened during their visit to the area and revealed that the officer responsible for shooting the father has been arrested. They called for calm in the area.
Pessu’s friends have taken to Facebook to mourn his death. See their posts and more photos of the deceased below.
