Mother of the deceased, Esther, told the panel that her daughter graduated from Kent University in the UK.
“She would have stayed back in the UK to get a job but she chose to come back to Nigeria and serve her fatherland.
“But what did she get in return? She was murdered. Anita was an asset to the family but her life was cut short because of the carelessness of a policeman.”
The family wants N5billion compensation to assuage the trauma we went through.
