He was a 400 level student of the Department of Science Laboratory Technology, with Matric number (LSC0807159), University of Benin. He was murdered by CSP Carol Afegbua, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Ogida Police Station, Benin City.

More gist after the cut:
22 years old Momodu Richard Ibrahim aka Old General Ibrahim was on his way home about 2 minutes walk to his house, at about 11pm on the 27th of May,2013, when he was shoot by the DPO for walking late at night when there was no form of state of emergency in Edo State.

While we stand and look, it could be anyone tomorrow; so it's time to stand up and fight against injustice.
Meanwhile, Section 33(1) of the 1999 constitution as amended states that "Every person has a right to life and that no one shall be deprived intentionally of his life, save in execution of a court in respect of a  criminal offense of which he has been found guilty in Nigeria. 
Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Right guarantees the right to life, liberty and personal security and Section 4 of the police act submitted that the police is to protect life and property.  

All efforts to hear from the DPO proved abortive. After consulting with the family of the deceased, the youths and students of Uniben have decided to come out to protest on Monday 3rd of June, 2013, with black Tshirts against the mindless and barbaric killing of Ibrahim and have the DPO arrested and prosecuted with immediate effect.

No man is free when others are infringed of their rights and only a fool will say "I will not fight because am not the person that is oppressed." It's Ibrahim today and could be anyone tomorrow.
