Kaycee Madu, the first black minister of justice in Canada has recounted the horrific experience of how policemen murdered his cousin in 2013. Kaycee whose appointment was well celebrated with a congratulatory message from President Buhari himself, shared a graphic photo of the incident.
Kaycee Madu who has lent his support to the nationwide #EndSARS campaign by the Nigerian youths, shared the graphic image of his cousin in a pool of blood after blood thirsty policemen killed him. He tweeted;
“I support the people of Nigeria as they protest to end police brutality and extrajudicial killings. My own cousin, Chrisantus Nwabueze Lorie was murdered by Nigerian police in April 2013. The policing system in Nigeria needed total reform.
Madu said despite his best efforts to make the Nigerian police investigate the death of his cousin Chrisantus Nwabueze Korie, nothing was achieved.
“Despite my best efforts, the police would not investigate his murder and did everything to obstruct it. I also helped to petition a committee of Nigeria’s National Assembly to probe the killing and report back to the House within a timely manner.”
“Fundamental human rights like peace, security and freedom from police brutality are universal. The Nigerian government has an obligation to protect its citizens and deliver substantive police reform. Changing the name of SARS and reconstituting it without significant reform won’t be sufficient to satisfy the cry of the Nigerian people for justice,” he said.
