How Irish police killed 27-year-old Nigerian, George Nkencho-Post-mortem report
London, Jan. 11, 2021 (AltAfrica)-A detailed post-mortem report of the death of a 27-year-old Nigerian, George Nkencho, in Dublin, Ireland has revealed the extent of the gruesome murder as Irish police shot the defenceless man six times.
The interim cause of death for George Nkencho, 27, according to Dublin Live was also found to be two gunshots that fatally penetrated his vital organs.
Five shots penetrated his torso with another passing through his arm, according to sources close to the Nkencho family, who were contacted by the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission with the post-mortem results.
An email sent to the family by Gsoc confirmed to them “injuries noted at the postmortem examination were that it appears that six shots by the Irish police were aimed at the central mass [torso] and of those shots, one went through George’s arm and did not go into his chest”.
The email goes on to say “the interim cause of death was two fatal gunshots, which caused damage to vital organs”.
Mr Nkencho was shot dead outside his family home in Manorfield, Clonee, on the Dublin-Meath border on the afternoon of December 30.
Mr Nkencho, who suffered mental health problems, had reportedly been involved in an incident at a Spar shop in nearby Hartstown and a further alleged incident at a post office while carrying a knife.
The family’s solicitor Phelim O’Neill has expressed his “extreme concerns” at the pace of the investigation while welcoming it being given the status of a criminal investigation by Gsoc.
Mr O’Neill said: “It is now a real and distinct possibility that on the conclusion of the Gsoc investigation that members of An Garda Siochana will be criminally prosecuted for their actions in shooting George Nkencho to death.”
Mr O’Neill has written to Gsoc asking them to confirm “if any of the shots entered through Mr Nkencho’s back”
The solicitor has also asked Gsoc to confirm how many gardai were in attendance at the scene and how many shots in total were fired by gardai.
Mr O’Neill has also asked Gsoc to “please confirm how the postmortem examination could possibly account for the aim” of the shots fired into Mr Nkencho.
