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
