A woman has taken to Facebook to slam police for the death of her husband, who was slain by police after trying to ram his car through a police security checkpoint in an attempt to flee.
The woman, who goes by the moniker Fifi Divinez, said she is 2 months pregnant with the dead man’s child.
She justified her husband’s attempt to flee, saying he did so because he didn’t have a driving licence.
“Good Job To SPF yes ..and now tell me i am his Wife.My Name is Nassida Nasir .So tell me is it justify of the law to shot dead right on my husband head just because he tried to run away?
