Aunt of George Nkencho calls for an independent public inquiry into his death

Campaigners and supporters of George Nkencho’s family have expressed concerns over the pace of the investigation into his death.

The George Nkencho Coalition criticised the ongoing Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) investigation, and repeated their calls for an independent public inquiry into his death.

Mr Nkencho, 27, died outside his Dublin home in December after being shot multiple times by members of a Garda armed support unit while allegedly brandishing a knife.

Mr Nkencho was suffering from mental health issues at the time.

The coalition group, also known as the 30th December Movement, said the “needless and violent” death of Mr Nkencho has shattered the cohesion of the multi-cultural community.

Among the speakers was Mr Nkencho’s aunt, Grace Anyanwu, who reissued their call to carry out an inquiry into the incident.
