NDLEA officers arrested for ‘shooting’ two-year-old boy dead in Delta


Delta State Police Command said it has in custody some officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) whose bullets killed a two-year old boy Ivan Omhonria.

The toddler was hit by stray bullets on July 13 when operatives of the NDLEA raided an alleged drug syndicate spot in Okpanam, a suburb of the state capital.

Omhonria’s younger sibling suffered an injury in the eye as a result of the shooting.
