Today in Warri, a young man by the name Joseph Pessu was murdered by a soldier.
Information reaching me was that the stopped him to interrogate him but he refused to stop. He was chased from Ubeji before the army caught up with him at Ugbuwangue and shot him.
I'm not sure whether it was retaliation for an attack on some soldiers yesterday while enforcing the Delta State lockdown.
Delta State, Nigeria
