 Miss Queen Nwazuo

*Attempt to get Justice for her at Rivers State Judicial Panel of Inquiry failed

Miss Queen Nwazuo, the lady shot dead in Oyigbo in Rivers State during a military operation would be buried this weekend in Asa, her hometown, in Abia state.

The lady died during the military response after soldiers were killed by members of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.

Nwazuo, who was scheduled to get married to Monday Bakor sometimes in February 2021 died almost 24 hours after she was shot.

She could not get medical help because of the 24-hour curfew imposed on the area during the military operation.

Despite the denial of the military, Bakor had insisted that the bullet which killed his would-be-wife wife was fired by soldiers deployed to fish out suspected members of  IPOB in Oyigbo.

Attempt by her family to seek justice and  compensation at the Rivers State Judicial Commission of Inquiry addressing acts of violence and Violation of Fundamental Rights of citizens by the Police was dismissed on Friday November 27.

The panel had argued that it was constrained by its mandate to entertain only matters related to police brutality and not those involving the military.

Bullet that killed Nwazuo allegedly pierced through this door to hit her after it was allegedly fired by a yet to be identified soldier

However reacting to the use of the terms “allegedly” and “stray bullet” in the media in reference to the killing of his fiancée,  Bakor on Monday angrily said:

“Don’t use the word ‘”alleged”, She was killed right inside the shop,

“Don’t use the word “stray bullet”, It was a deliberate act, a gunshot directly at the shop is not a stray bullet.”

In a heartrending Facebook post on his timeline in remembrance of his fiancee’s last birthday celebration, Bakor wrote:  “This is when we all came together to celebrate your birthday, I never knew an unprecedented session like this would come where I’ll be wearing one boxer and shirt for a month plus now for something I didn’t bargain for, I haven’t slept a night without taking sleeping pills.

“I never knew that an untrained, unprofessional cop would cut short your life for absolutely nothing,

“I hereby call on his Excellency Governor Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State and all meaning Nigerians that value life to lend their voice to this this evil done to my fiancée, it might be anyone tomorrow.

“What’s her offence to deserve this kind of treatment? Why would she die for nothing?”
