The incident occurred on Thursday, April 25, 2024, when the youths numbering over 30 in two buses and a car were stopped for a routine check in front of the police station.

The deceased, a widow, was among a team of policemen conducting the search when the youths travelling to Akwa Ibom State for a wedding programme approached them before they carried out the tragic act.

Trouble started when a police team queried the validity of the document of one of the cars they were travelling in.

A source who pleaded anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the incident said the youths became aggrieved and blocked the road and demanded that a senior cop who had their car papers should return them and allow them to go.

He further said the officer handed over the papers to them and after completing the search asked them to leave, but that they refused, alleging that they saw Mrs. Erekere filming them during the melee and immediately tried to seize her mobile phone.

“When they could not take her phone, they started throwing stones at her and used sticks to hit her. They also beat the other policemen who ran away. But they continued to beat the woman until she passed out.”

The source said, “On April 25, 2024, at about 2:30 pm, Inspector Christiana Erekere (female) while on duty at Taabaa Division in Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State, was beaten to death by some group of persons with three vehicles from Delta State going to Akwa Ibom State for marriage.

“The source said they were apprehended by another police team while trying to escape and that about 17 persons were identified and arrested while others were still at large.

Meanwhile, the family of the deceased woman has called for justice, saying their sister was serving the nation and did not deserve to be killed like that.

Meanwhile, the Rivers State Police Command said it had arrested 16 of the persons involved in the barbaric act, pointing out that investigations were ongoing.

  1. Good.
    This isn’t good.
    That’s the feeling we get when the police kill innocent civilians all in the name of discharging their work
