Justin Imbufe Ugal, the indomie seller who was struck by a stray bullet in Obudu last Wednesday has died.
He died after the family was unable to raise money to move him from Obudu to UCTH Calabar or Abakaliki where he was referred.
Mobile Policemen attached to mopol 75 were shooting to disperse a crowd of women who were protesting the grabbing of their village land by the Ayade Government for an airport project.
The hospital in Obudu had requested for 45, 000 naira. His family raised 11, 000 naira while SA Governor’s office, Ken Aklah and Commissioner Victor Agwu visited the hospital and added 30, 000.
When the Obudu hosptial couldn’t handle the matter again and referred them elsewhere, help couldn’t come from anywhere, not from the Police that shot him or the Government.
20 suspects have been arraigned and granted bail while the case is adjourned to April 30, 2020.
As as the time of filing this report the State Police PRO was not available for comment.
