A Police Inspector, Mr. Samuel Timothy has been sentenced to death by hanging by Justice Adolphus Enebeli of Rivers State High Court, for killing one Onyekachi Nwasouba, a graduate of Industrial chemistry on November 10, 2010 at No 34 Old Aba road, Port Harcourt at about 5am.

The policeman reportedly shot Onyekachi dead despite plea that he was not an armed robber.

Information made available before the court showed that the deceased was a producer and distributor of his brand of sachet water and was out early to distribute the sachet water to his clients when the sad incident occurred.

Justice Enebeli who noted that the matter had been in his court since 2010, described the convict as inhuman and not fit to live among descent humans.

“Inhuman trigger-happy policeman, who engages in murder; a hater of humankind and merciless killer, after hearing that the victim was an ordinary pure water seller,” said Justice Enebeli.

“According to Section 319 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I do not have the power to reduce your sentence. That, you, Inspector Timothy Sampson be hanged on your neck until you are dead,” he ruled.

However, Corporal Moses Obediah, who was also arraigned was discharged as Justice Enebeli said that the testimonies of witnesses and others before the court showed that he did not conspire with Inspector Timothy to commit the criminal act.
