Angry youths of Ihitte-Uboma LGA in Imo State have taken to the streets of Isinweke community to protest the alleged killing of an indigene of the area by a suspected policeman.

It was gathered that the protesting youths had set on fire, the LG council headquarters in Isinweke, the Ihitte-Uboma Divisional Police Headquarters and a court building in the community.

The protesters, according to reports stormed the LG Secretariat on Tuesday in multiple vehicles and caused a stampede.

It was learnt that a businessman who owns a Bet9Nija centre in the area had invited the police to arrest his salesgirl, who allowed a customer to place a N100, 000 bet on credit.

A source said the salesgirl who was asthmatic was detained by the police after being allowed to fetch her inhaler at home.

It continued, “in the process, a group of angry youths attacked the police and one youth was killed.

The youths regrouped themselves and burnt the police station and other places.”
