On May 26, the Ezekwe family was thrown into turmoil after a trigger-happy policeman, Theophilus Otobo, shot into a crowd, hitting young Tina. The teenager, who aspired to become a medical doctor and was preparing for her secondary school certificate exams, died two days later. Today would have been Tina's birthday. Now, her family, as well as her community in the Lagos suburb of Oworo, are experiencing a pain that has become all too familiar among Nigerians: the pain of losing loved ones to police brutality.
