Pain and agony hit family as only son allegedly killed by army
It was indeed a black Saturday in Owerri especially to a family who lost their only son.
The 10-year-old boy was allegedly killed by a stray bullet from the army at the market where he was assisting his mother to pack their wares at the demolished market in Owerri.
According to an online report from a facebook user, Chinemelu Ike who share the story on her Facebook page:
What a world! What a country! what a govt! I had an emergency case this morning, l rushed off to FMC owerri despite the cleanup exercise. At FMC, as my patient was been attended to. The hospital turned into a military hospital where several people with bullet wounds were rushed in. Their stories- Army Men at around Ekeonuwaa Market by Douglas shot them. I was still trying to comprehend when a 10yr old boy was rushed in. The boy had left their house to go and assist his mother pack their wares. A bullet from a trigger happy Army man hit the boy. A good samaritan rushed the boy but it was soooo late. An only son of a_ trying to survive family. Every one in Fmc this morning has cried out their eyes. Ohh God help your Children
