She was said to have been promptly rushed to Garki hospital but due to the refusal of the doctors on duty to attend to her until a police report was seen, despite police officers being present, the young corper eventually bled to death.

A Twitter user (@Chinny3bs), who claimed to be her sister, confirmed this in a tweet.

“Please guys help me retweet my last retweet. My little sister was shot dead by the police this morning in Abuja,” she wrote.

Linda had served in the Mabushi area of Abuja and was meant to conclude her NYSC programme today, July 5, 2018.

In his narration, Segun Awosanya, an activist and convener of the #EndSARS campaign, said the deceased had gone out with friends to celebrate her end of year service when the incident happened.

“She finished at work late at about 11pm and joined a few friends to a hang out before their passing out parade scheduled for Thursday (today),” he said via Twitter.

“They left for home at about 3am and was shot at shortly after the check point immediately after Ceddi Plaza by a Police Officer identified as Benjamin Peters.

“The bullet hit Angela on her side, by the midriff and she began loosing blood in the open roof vehicle.

“She was rushed to the Garki hospital but they wouldn’t treat her until they see a police report despite the fact that the police officers were present. While the deliberation was ongoing, Angela bled to death.”
