Late Nnorom, a Union Bank Staff at one of the bank branches in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, was allegedly killed on May 13 when his alleged killer’s car, a Toyota Camry, hit his Honda CRV SUV car while going for a friend’s wedding at Elelewon area of Port Harcourt with his widow.

In the ensuing arguement, it was alleged that the 28-year-old late banker alighted from his car while Udoh sat in his, rammed the car into him, killing Nnorom in the process.

The deceased’s elder brother, Mr. Chibuzor Nnorom, has accused the police of turning the case into a mere traffic offence.

Chibuzor’s allegation followed the decision of Elelewon Magistrate Court to grant Udoh bail.
Chibuzor expressed his fury at the court’s judgement saying that the police has compromised.

He said, “The DPO in Elelewon connived and turned what supposed to be a murder case to traffic offence. The magistrate also failed to ask if somebody is dead. The police have been compromised.”
