Wife of journalist petitions IGP over husband’s death’

The late Bismark Bebi’s wife, Matilda Bebli has petitioned the Inspector General of Police (IGP), demanding the truth from the police on circumstances leading to her husband’s death.

According to the widow, Matilda Bebli, some of the conflicting accounts implicate the Police in the death of her husband.

In a Citi News interview, she said, “according to sources and eyewitnesses around the area, it was not a brake failure. It was a policeman that was struggling with the driver so in the course of that struggle, that led to the driver hitting my husband… apart from the struggle with the driver, they left my husband there. They took their own policeman away and they left my husband to die”

“I want the IGP to come out with something good, but they are not doing anything about it so that is why I have petitioned the IGP because he has left behind triplets for me to take care off and I don’t know how to take care of these children,” she said.
