Oby Ezekwesili has expressed her dissatisfaction at the death of the newspaper vendor Ifeanyi Okereke Elechi in Abuja, and has condemned Feemi Gbajabiamila’s statement on the situation, saying it falls short terribly.
Sending a heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased Elechi, Oby noted that security details are usually overzealous in relating with the members around their principals, which she said is a rule carried over from the military regime.
“That reckless killing of Ifeanyi Okereke, a vendor yesterday, by an overzealous @PoliceNG Detail of @femigbaja @HouseNGR Speaker for no reason but *Bigman-Syndrome* is deeply painful. The Speaker’s statement falls terribly short. Let’s hear a real Justice Plan for Ifeanyi. You’ll be shocked how overzealous security details are, relating with members of the public around their Principals.

“A carryover from military rule. It behoves sensible public officials to reorientate and insist on *Respectful Culture* from their Aides to the public. Many fail. Our heartfelt condolences to the family of Ifeanyi Okereke. May our good Lord comfort them on all sides and give peace that passes all understanding. We shall keep our eyes on @femigbaja @HouseNGR Speaker on this matter to see how seriously he pursues Justice for Ifeanyi“, she wrote.
