Five policemen who allegedly killed a final-year Law student have reportedly escaped from police custody.
Augustine Ugwu who was a student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State was said to have been arrested in a bar by a local anti-cult outfit set up by the late Chairman of Nsukka Local Government Area, Patrick Omeje, on April 23, 2020.
They were reported to have handed him over to the officer-in-charge of the Enugu Police Anti-Cult unit in Nsukka, DSP Nnamdi Ochin.
The police later claimed the student was not in their custody.
Following the development, his father, Andy Ugwu, a retired police officer, petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, who ordered an investigation into the incident.
A six-man panel led by ACP Gabriel Elaigbwu was constituted to unravel the matter. The panel from the Force Headquarters, Abuja came to Enugu in June for investigation.
It was gathered that the panel found that Augustine had been killed and buried in a shallow grave by five policemen.
