A man has told a shocking story, alleging that some police officers chased his son to death in a Lagos community. Chief Nnaemeka Obiekwe, the Nwachinyere of Lagos High  has relieved how policemen chased his 27-year-old son, Chigozie Promise to death.
 
According to a report by The Nation, the incident occurred on April 11 when Chigozie was going to work. The distraught father of five said his son took a bike from Oshodi that fateful morning. Along the way, some policemen started chasing Okada riders and the bike man that carried him turned back driving against traffic back to Oshodi.
 
They were hit by a speeding Tipper; Chigozie fell down and the tipper crushed him. High Chief Obiekwe, who is the Managing Director of Nna Motors Organisation, said the plans of his son to further his study abroad were truncated. He said:
Quote
“My son just died like that. He was working at Guinness Breweries in Ogba. He was going to work. The boy is a graduate. He’s a good boy. He finished from Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH). He had Higher National Diploma (HND) in Hospitality. It’s a painful departure because he’s my first son. It pains me that things are going the other way round in this country.”

 
He urged the government to train security agencies on how to arrest offender’s without leading to death.
Quote
“Chasing Okada riders on the road is not in tandem with modern way of securing the state. It happens in many places especially all these Task Force men chasing Okada riders in order to impound their motorcycles. They should realise that people are struggling to make a living.  There is poverty and hunger in the land. People want to survive.
“They can fashion way out if they don’t want Okada on the road again. Let them withdraw their particulars or ban them totally. That will be better than to be chasing Okada on the motion or rounding them up dangerously.
“My own son has died. Who knows who the next victim could be? The media should help to educate the police on how things are done in advanced countries.”

 
He lamented that his hope on the late Chigozie has been dashed.
Quote
“He was a humble person. He is my hope. I’m looking forward that he would take care of me at old age, but see what our policemen done to me. It’s a very painful situation. He wanted to further his education overseas. I don’t even know what to say more. He’s minus one from the people that have great prospects for Nigeria in the future. He’s minus one in whatever I will be in the future. He’s minus one in whatever my family will be in the future,” h
e said.
