10 year old Somto Ibeanusi who was killed during the demolition of the Eke Ukwu market in Owerri, Imo state in August, has been buried. He was laid to rest at his hometown in Umunnealam Ukwuofor, Nnewi, Anambra state yesterday September 20th. Somto was killed by a stray bullet when he went to his parent’s shop in the market to remove their goods whilst the demolition was going on. The traders in the market had tried to prevent the demolition and the security officers who were present fired some shots into the air. Sadly, one of the bullets hit Somtochukwu. May his soul rest in peace Amen. See photos from his burial below
