Policeman allegedly kills ram dealer


Nigeria Police

There was pandemonium at Ganaja area of Ajaokuta local government area of Kogi State on Tuesday when an operative of the anti-kidnapping unit of the Kogi State police command, Sgt Ibrahim Isah, allegedly gunned down a 45-year-old manager of BB Umar Livestock, Ibrahim Ali, popularly known as Nababa.

The Guardian gathered that the deceased, who was married with seven children, was one of the enraged residents that impressed it upon the police operative to show concern to a girl he knocked down with a motorbike close to his shop.

Trouble started when some angry mob seized the motorbike of the officer. Eyewitness account also revealed that when residents of the area were appealing to the officer to convey the girl to the hosipital for treatment, he refused but rather called his other colleagues who are also Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) operatives.

The matter got worsened when men of the SARS arrived the scene and took side in support of their colleagues, an action that sparked the anger of residents of Ganaja, who are natives. In the ensuing argument, there was a shootout, with a bullet allegedly hitting the manager of BB Umar, who was said to be seated in his shop.
