Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki called for the trial of the security personnel that were involved in the avoidable death of a Lagos-based tech guru, David Ntekim-Rev over the weekend in Jibowu axis of Lagos.
“Learning that David Ntekim-Rex died despite existing laws that we passed during the 8th Senate to mitigate against such occurrences is truly heartbreaking. My heartfelt prayers are with his loved ones at this truly difficult time.
I hope that all those that are found to have been negligent in this case are quickly apprehended and tried under the ‘Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshot Act (2017)’ to ensure that no family ever has to suffer such a loss again” according to Bukola Saraki.
The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain was the Senate President when the ‘Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshots in Nigeria was passed.
Saraki’s reaction was as a result of David death after sustaining gunshot wounds from armed robbers attack and the police watched him bled to death while stopping medical personnel from treating him.
