Rivers Lockdown: Man loses mother after delay by alleged bribe-seeking police officers

Port Harcourt resident identified as Peter Ugavah has taken to his Twitter handle to tell narrate how alleged extortion and delay at police checkpoint caused his mother’s death.

In a heartbreaking and emotion-laden story posted Saturday morning on his Twitter handle,
Mr Ugavah lamented that the said police officers rejected his offer to do a mobile bank transfer of the N20,000 being requested for, instead demanded for cash.

A series of tweets put out by Mr Peter read:

“I am in pains right now , I have now become an orphan all because of this lock down. My mom would not have died if we had arrived at the hospital early enough. I even offered to make a transfer these officers refused, thy said it will be traceable , they needed cash .

Even after pleading with them for over an hour , these heartless officers refused to all us move. They made me sit there and watch my mom pass away before my eyes. I doubt if I will ever be normal again after this. I hate this country .

So many lives is being lost daily due to this lock down and sadly it is not covid 19 that is killing them. The anger I feel right now is totally overwhelming

I want to get something clear , @NyesomWlKE are we not allowed to take our loved ones who need medical care to the hospital ? Are we just supposed to sit at home and die
