Some operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS, on the trail of a suspect, Omozokpia Irabor, eventually killed his father at his residence in Uwene quarters, Illeh village in Ekpoma, Edo state. They were said to have arrived the deceased, Christopher Irabor's house at about 12 pm. The deceased's wife, Faith Irabor, told PM News her husband held the door to prevent the DSS operatives from entering into his room, but was overpowered. She alleged one of the operatives pointed a gun at the deceased before shooting him to death. Faith added that the operatives, when leaving, shot indiscriminately before taking her younger son with them. But the DSS, Edo command, denied Faith's account, claiming the deceased had attempted to seize an operatives gun. The family, an anonymous operative purported, did not allow them entry until their forcefully broke down the door. The operative further said they had assembled the occupants found in all the rooms except one, which they couldn't enter because those inside refused to come out. The said room was supposedly where Christopher Irabor was shot. Until his death, he was a porter at the School of Medicine of the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma.
