Umahi warned that his administration will not tolerate any form of killing of innocent citizens or extrajudicial killing by the security agencies and ordered the Commissioner of Police in the State, Mr Titus Lamorde to arrest the trigger-happy policeman who shot at the Okada man, while other members of his team, who were present during the confrontation that led to the fatal shooting, should be made to feel the full force of the law.

Governor Umahi expressed his sincere condolences to the family of the deceased and promised to visit the family when full information concerning his family is made available. He called on the public to remain calm and not resort to taking laws into their hands.
