By Temitope Ojo
Rapper and actor, Folarin Falana AKA Falz, has been reacting to the death of a female corp member, Linda Angela Igwetu, who was allegedly shot dead by a trigger-happy policeman in Abuja.
Linda was meant to pass out today, Thursday, July 5th.
Police spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) confirmed the incident and he said the command is investigating the incident.
Falz, in a post to Twitter, stated that no hospital has the right to deny even a suspected armed robber treatment.
“This country ehn. I really don’t grab. Sigh.
“If somebody has a gunshot wound and they are brought to your hospital, you are supposed to treat them, not ask for any f*cking police report.
“Even if na suspected armed robber, Who are you to deprive them of the right to stay alive? Let the court pass judgment,” he wrote.
Linda was said to have been out celebrating her passing out with her friends when the policeman shot the car she was in.
She sustained gunshot wound and was rushed to Garki hospital but the hospital refused to treat her because there was no police report authorizing them to treat her gunshot wound. She then bled to death.
