Somtochukwu Ibeanusi who was killed by a stray bullet during the demolition of the Eke Ukwu market in Owerri, the capital of Imo state has been buried.
The 10-year-old boy buried in the family compound in Anambra state on Wednesday, September 20, amidst tears.
It was reported that the boy died after violence escalated between traders and security operatives during the demolition of the market.
NAIJ.com had reported that Governor Rochas Okorocha is now to name a road after him after he had first denied that there was loss of lives from the incident.
The Cable reports that Sam Onwuemeodo, the chief press secretary to the governor, confirmed Okorocha will honour the deceased in a statement.
The governor reportedly said that any building erected on the site of the demolished market would be named after the deceased.
The governor said his action in demolishing the market was to liberate the people from a wicked clique made up of few families who have held them captive for years.
