She said, “I cannot see my ‘The Law’ again. People usually call her ‘The Law’. She was taken away from me. She was pregnant with twins.
“She died with her glory. She left a five-year-old daughter behind. And they took her away.
On Monday, my granddaughter came to me and said ‘Grandma Iju Ishaga, I saw you yesterday when you were crying; you were shouting; is it because of my mummy?’ And I said ‘yes’.
“Then she came again and told me, ‘Pastor Jerry said what God cannot do does not exist; so, grandma, stop crying’. And she kissed me on the cheek.
“It is not easy. A child that I have been training since childhood. I suffered over her. I hawked oranges; there is nothing I did not do.”

She was rushed to a hospital where she was confirmed dead.
PUNCH reported that a senior security official at the Ajiwe Police Station, said Vandi claimed accidental discharge.
The source said, “He was being interrogated by the DPO and some senior police officers yesterday morning (Monday).

By the time the victim arrived at the checkpoint, he attempted to repeat the same act, but mistakenly pulled the trigger.”

Vandi is a calm officer. He is due to be promoted to Deputy Superintendent of Police by February 2023 and retire in 2024 before the unfortunate incident.
