An Umuahia High Court has sentenced a former police officer, Corporal Umaru Mohammed to death by hanging over the killing of another police man.

Corporal Umaru Mohammed, who was attached to the Abia State Government House had on July 19, 2011, shot and killed Corporal Clement Amaechi, also attached to the Government House, at his official residence, 19B, Okpara Avenue, GRA, Umuahia.

In his judgment, presiding judge, Justice Agwu Umah Kalu said that the prosecution had proved beyond doubt that the gunshots fired by Umaru Mohammed at close range killed the deceased.

He stated that the offence was punishable under section 319, Cap 1 of the criminal code as applicable to Abia State.

He therefore said that the accused deserved no sympathy and should be hanged on the neck until he dies, saying that it would serve as a deterrent to those who may want to commit similar crimes.

The police had earlier subjected Umaru Mohammed to orderly room trial where he was found him guilty and was dismissed. The High court then tried him according to law, after the matter was remitted from the Magistrate Court.

    i think this we serve as an example to policemen expecially the police mobile force because they believe they can fire anyhow and get ammunition from somewhere.my advice to the police authority is to train their personel very well concerning weapon handling.because now is not more kill and go as before or kill and bury now is kill and be killed or jailed.

    Hausa policeman murdering an igbo fellow policeman. How typical of this race of murderers and barbarians. Hausas deserve total isolation from the rest of humanity because of their near bestial nature.
