According to a report by The PUNCH, the Rivers State Police Command said a 20-year-old up-and-coming artiste, Daniel Ikeaguchi (aka Sleek), died of gunshot complications following an autopsy conducted on his corpse.

A consultant pathologist for the state police command, Musa Stevens, told journalists that the autopsy was conducted at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital.

He said a missile object consistent with a metallic bullet was found in the deceased’s body.

Stevens further said he saw a penetrating wound on the back of the late artiste, noting that he (Ikeaguchi) died of complications from the injuries he sustained.

Stevens added, “The body before me that was examined showed a single penetrating wound from the back. I recovered a missile object consistent with a metallic bullet. From my examination, he (Ikeaguchi) died of complications from the injury.”

Ikeaguchi was allegedly shot by Special Anti-Robbery Squad operatives of the Rivers command in the Elelenwo area of Port Harcourt, the state capital, last Saturday.

The incident has since sparked protests, especially by youths and civil society organisations, demanding justice for the slain musician.

Meanwhile, father of the late musician, Mr Dominic Ikeaguchi, who broke down in tears after seeing the lifeless body of his son, has also demanded justice, saying he was heartbroken.

“Somebody just wasted my son. There was no war; there was no fight; there was no riot. The boy wasn’t involved in any fracas or robbery.

“They murdered him; they wasted him. Oh God, avenge his blood. The Lord will surely do it for me. My heart is broken. I need justice,” the visibly broken man said.

Counsel for the Ikeaguchi’s family, Chinedu Orji, said the matter would be charged to court, noting that the family insisted on conducting an autopsy to serve as evidence in court.

“Even if we are sure that it was a gunshot that killed him, we still need to get the autopsy so that it can be on paper because this matter will definitely go to court. It (autopsy report) will be a piece of evidence in court,”
he said.

Meanwhile, the policeman, who allegedly shot Ikeaguchi, Sergeant Isaiah Ben, has since been arrested and detained at the State Criminal and Investigation and Intelligence Department.
