The member representing Warri Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Chief Thomas Ereyitomi, has condemned in strong terms, the killing of a young man by security agent in Warri less than 48 hours into the 14 days lock down order issued by the state government.
Chief Ereyitomi described the action of the military as inhumane against the people they are meant to protect just for the sake of enforcement, stressing that on no account should life be taken without engagement in combat with the soldiers.
He frowned at the action of the military saying, every life is important to him especially those in his constituency and beyond, assuring that he will always protect and legislate to their welfare security and survival.
While expressing shock over the killing of the victim whose identity was revealed as one Joseph Pessu, Chief Ereyitomi immediately called for thorough investigation in order to bring the culprit to book and serve as deterrent to other trigger happy security agents in Warri.
He assured the Pessu family that he will make sure the soldier involved is brought to book and those involved arrested and dealt with accordingly.
Representative Ereyitomi further appealed to Warri residents to remain calm, maintain law and order, and comply to the Delta State Government directive on staying at home to be save as the Coronavirus mitigation battle continues in the country.
