“Mr Francis Ebonyi Ogbole was travelling to Benue State yesterday (Wednesday) for the burial of his junior sister.
“On his way to the Iddo park, Oyingbo, Lagos State, escorted by his children which makes four people in the car, they were stopped by stop-and-search policemen with metro police van registration number KSF-176 EE.
“The policeman requested for all the necessary papers which he presented, then he was entering his car when a policeman, Sergeant Matthew Oche with force number F/NO-372727, said no he can’t leave now cause the back glass of his car is tinted.
“Mr. Francis, however told him that it was because it still early and dark, around 5:30a.m, that the glass is not tinted, but the policeman was looking for a way to extort money from him.
“Out of anger, the policeman pushed him and he fell, broke his head and died instantly.”
