Chima’s autopsy report revealed that Chima died of torture in Police custody

Anthony Ekunado, late Chima’s elder brother confirmed this to Nig. Info while rebuffing the rumour that the family received 10 million naira as compensation.

He stated:

‘’   I can never be a party to that.The  rumour that the family has collected 10 million naira is false. I have spoken with Dandaura. I called him on phone. He said ‘ Tony, I am sorry am not in Rivers State again. The autopsy result has come out ,the thing shows that the Police killed the boy. They tortured him to death’

He continued:

‘’ The autopsy result has not been given to us, once we get there, we are demanding for the autopsy report.’

According to him, talks are expected to resume with the new Rivers State Police Commissioner, CP Mukan by the end of June, 2020.

Anthony lamented over the slow pace in which the matter is being handled, accusing the Police of trying to sweep the matter under the carpet.
