Rivers State Task force officials have been accused of beating a man to death during an argument on Tuesday February 26.
The deceased was said to be a Bureau de change operator near Hotel Presidential at Aba Road, GRA Phase II.
When contacted by The Nation, spokesperson of the task force Bright Amaewhule denied allegation, saying;
“There is no truth in the rumour making the rounds that members of the state task force killed the man; my men had no hand whatsoever in that death; instead they came to offer help to the fainting man but were turned down by the deceased’s brothers around.
“However, the man that died was not a money Bureau de change person, instead he runs a buka behind the refurbished presidential hotel busstop along Aba Road, although we have been asking him to leave the place.”
The state police command spokesperson, Nnamdi Omoni confirmed the incident says it investigation is on going.
The road was barricaded by folks of the deceased after the incident, eye witness said.
