Policeman sentenced to death by hanging for killing 20yr old man

Justice has finally come the way of the family of slain Emmanuel Victor (pictured above), a 20 year old young man who was killed in front of his mother by a trigger-happy Policeman, Mathew Egheghe, two years ago in Yenogoa, Bayelsa state.

Victor was shot dead after he confronted a group of policemen who were trying to extort money from motorists as he was coming back from church. Angered by his effrontery to question their action, Policeman Egheghe moved close to Victor and shot him at close range.
Narrating what happened, Victor's mother Grace, who witnessed the incident said:
"They shot my son brutally. As he fell while they were shooting him, the tallest of them still continued shooting him on the ground". She said she was harassed and stopped from going close to her dying son even as he lay gasping for life in the pool of his own blood.
Delivering his judgement on the case, Justice Lucky Boufili said that such a cruel act was only punishable by the maximum penalty which is death. He sentenced Mathew Egheghe to death by Hanging. The police has since dismissed Mathew Egheghe and his two accomplices from the force.

According to Doyin , one morning, his wife was running late for work and was worried that she wouldn't be able to get their daughter's hair done before she went to school that day.
He told her that she could leave, that he would handle it.
His wife countered by saying that doing their daughter's hair requires attention and the baby would get upset if he left her alone while he played the role of stylist.

On the way out she said, 'I'll believe it when I see it.'"
So while she was gone, Doyin placed his infant into her carrier and "worked his hair magic" on their older daughter.
