The young lady, who was reportedly murdered by men of the Nigerian police force on her way back from the club yesterday, has been identified as Ada Ifeanyi.

The 20-year-old died on the spot after she was shot by men of the Trinity Police Station, Ajegunle, who were on their usual illegal night raids.

"Men of the @PoliceNG from Trinity Police Station Ajegunle have killed another innocent Nigerian youth. They killed a 20yr old girl in Ajegunle while the boy that was with her was also shot and is fighting for his life . We demand the death sentence," rapper, Ruggedman, who reported the tragic loss, wrote on his timeline.

While Ada was unlucky to have gone down immediately after she was shot, the guy, Emmanuel Akomafuwa, who was with her survived the attack but is however in a critical state as he battles for his life.

Police brutality, oppression and even killings have become rampant in the country in recent times, with several cases of illegal extortion and barbaric treatments being reported daily.
