Nigerian Junior Tennis Champ’s Mother allegedly killed by Mobile Police



AngelThe Vanguard Newspaper broke this story early today,

The Nigerian tennis family was yesterday thrown into uncontrollable mourning after an official of the Mobile Police Force (MOPOL) allegedly shot dead the mother of teenage tennis star, Angel Macleod.

According to unconfirmed reports, Macleod’s mother, was reportedly killed by a bullet that emanated from the unnamed Mopol, who we learnt was engaged in a slight altercation with the deceased at a Lagos hotel.

It was alleged from a source that the Mopol, who was guarding the hotel premises, had hit the deceased, who reportedly hit him back with an object and irked by the retaliation, he subsequently fired a shot from his gun, which eyewitnesses said resulted in the death of Macleod’s mother.

It was learnt that Macleod is in a state of shock as her deceased mother was her all in all, catering to her every needs.

The 14 year old daughter of the deceased is one of Nigeria’s brightest young tennis stars. As at March 2015, she was the National Junior Tennis champion.

    Some Nigeria police men and women are so stupid. When they see armed robbers, they will run away but when the see innocent people they will have power. Now what these stupid police men are doing is that when they see a man well dressed, they will stop you and start asking you unnecessary questions, what do you do?….where do you live?….How do you get money to buy this expensive Jewelries, cloths, shoes and even Car. Before you know it, they will tag you armed robber or 419. If you don”t comply by giving them money, your are gone because they will tag you a thief or 419. Please Government should do something about this hungry police men and women. They have killed alot of innocent people.

    Ah! When people complain that our policemen and women are not armed enough, I wonder why we need to arm them anymore. Most of these people don’t fight crime. They are the first to hightail it out of crime scene (Robbery). All they use their weapons for is to harass innocent citizens. It is Nigeria, I don’t expect much to come of this. Even if this one is fired. Do you know how many innocent citizens have lost their lives that never made it to the news? The danfo drivers and conductors? Why do you think he had the guts to just take the poor woman’s life.? The article about recent attacks in Lagos yesterday addressed the dire security issue in Nigeria, when we need protection from those that are supposed to be doing the protection. what is the point of have some lame phone numbers to call, so they can come and finish what the robbers started???

    The whole Nigerian police force needs to be revamped, in fact the WHOLE of Nigeria needs to be revamped. If i start now i won’t finish typing this night. I feel so sorry for the girl, and the people involved need to be seriously dealt with.

    This is so sad, human life just snuffed out due to carelessness, negligence and stupidity of our so called fucked up police force. Has the police officer of mopol or scumbag who did this been caught and brought to face the music or probably this would be one of those cases where it just gets swept under the carpet.

    My condolences to the family

    This is quite unfortunate. One advise for people. Please never exchange words or claim right with somebody who is armed, this is because out of annoyance anything can happen. If we insult the police from today till tomorrow it will not bring the dead back. Let us all be very careful. Rest in Peace, so sad.

    She will need a lot of guidance and support. As other commenters have remarked, the main issue now is for somebody who is genuinely interested in her well-being to step in.
