#Murder: ‘Tuface’ must d!e for k!lling my brother — Relative of slain NAF officer
Godwin Eugene, the younger brother Kashite Eugene, an officer of Nigeria Air Force allegedly shot de#d by one Progress Amecheta, popularly known as “Tuface” in Omuanwa community, Ikwerre local government area of Rivers has demanded that the k!ller of his brother must also be k!lled.
Tuface, a member of local vigilance group popularly known as SPACO, allegedly sh#t the Air Force officer de#d when he went to demand the release of a relation detained at the base of the local security outfit over allegation of cultism last Tuesday.
The de#th of the Air Force officer led to invasion of the community the next day by military personnel, while Tuface has been arrested and is presently in police detention. However, it was learnt that at least three houses, including the operational base of OSPAC, were b#rnt by the military personnel as a reprisal action against the k!llimg of Eugene.
While the military personnel have left the community, Eugene, the brother of the slain Nigeria Air force personnel gave conditions for lasting peace in the areas in an interview with Today FM. Eugene, who is also Airforce Officer said one of the conditions for peace is Tuface, the k!ller of his brother to commit s!ic!de, mention those that sent him to commit the crime or allow the law enforcement agencies to k!ll him. In addition, he said his family demands the total scrapping of OSPAC in the Omuanwa community.
Eugene accused all members of OSPAC in the community of belonging to one cult group or the other including “Tuface” whom he said was a cult leader before joining OSPAC. He called for scrapping of OSPAC, which, he said, had turned itself into a terr!r organization with members who are not untrained in the handling of firearms and have no powers to try, prosecute and detain alleged suspects.
