Last month, Elizabeth Agwu, a woman and the daughter of the community’s Traditional Ruler, was struck by a bullet while police officers were invading the community to apprehend a suspected criminal.

The woman died as a result of the bullet, which struck her in the abdomen and struck her brain.

The suspect who the police officers arrived to apprehend was later shot and killed.
