Joseph Pessu

The Ologbotsere (Traditional Prime Minister) of Warri Kingdom, Chief Ayirimi Emami, has strongly condemned the murder of 28 - year old Joseph Pessu, by soldiers detailed to ensure compliance of the COVID - 19 lockdown in Warri, saying everything would be done to seek justice.

 

Chief Emami, who was apparently miffed at the report of Joseph Pessu' s death, stated that under no circumstances should a civilian who wasn't armed be killed by security agents, saying the lockdown declared by the Delta State Government is to prevent Coronavirus from spreading to the state and ultimately save lives, not to unlawfully kill innocent persons.

 

While condoling with the Pessu family over the death of Joseph, Chief Emami called on the Chief of Defence Staff,Chief of Army Staff and the Inspector - General of Police to immediately launch inquest into the circumstances that led to the death of Joseph Pessu Thursday in Warri, so as to unmask the soldier (s) that killed him.

 

He appealed to Itsekiri youths to remain calm and peaceful, assuring that everything would be done to ensure that those responsible for the death of Joseph Pessu , face the full weight of the law.

 

The Warri Traditional Prime Minister, stated that the era when trigger - happy security men take the lives of Itsekiris through extra judicial means were over, adding that the life of every law abiding Itsekiri indigene will be protected in line with constitutional provisions.
