See what happened when BBC broke the news of school boy death to his father

Recently, we detailed about the frightful homicide of a little fellow Chukwuma Edmund Ikechi, otherwise called "School Boy", a youthful keke driver in Port Harcourt, Rivers state who was purportedly killed as a result of not paying 100 bribe to police officer. The miserable episode happened around Airport street Rukpokwu, port Harcourt in River state and occupants have marched out in huge group to dissent. 

Well known media source, BBC News Pidgin went to break the news to the family and cover his responses and it was in reality a disastrous moment as Mr Victor Alionye Ikechi separated in wild tears hearing the news. Indeed, it was a really tragic moment to the family as they receive the death of their son.

Mr Victor Alionye Ikechi addressing BBC Pidgin said "What am I going to do?. My own fellow human being did this to my child". He kept on saying school Boy is my second child and this makes it 2 years he came to Port Harcourt to ride keke. He generally call him on telephone to approach him for exhortation, anyway he got a call earlier today just to hear that his child is dead and was killed by police since he denied giving them 100 naira pay off.
