Policeman Shoots Man Over N2,000!

A 34-year-old man, Adamu Mohammed was reportedly shot dead on Tuesday by a mobile police officer attached to the Bayelsa State Police Command over an argument on N2, 000 unpaid fees for a job done!

According to an eyewitness, the victim was shot in the thigh by the mobile policeman after an argument ensued over the amount to be paid for a job Mohammed was hired to do by a woman who needed him to clear a piece of land for her, adding that he shot the man to demobilise him.

Mohammed who accused the woman who gave him the job of cheating said, “We agreed on N3, 000. But after I finished the work, she said she will pay N1, 000. I got angry and she called in some
policemen guarding the home of a senior police officer on Erepa Road.

“The first person that came was a Civil Defence man and he claimed I stabbed him, and the mobile policeman, without asking questions, shot me in the thigh.”

It was further learnt that the policemen on duty at the residence of the undisclosed senior officer, appealed to the victim’s family not to lodge a formal complaint but should give them time to raise money for his treatment.

The family however noted that Mohammed has since been taken to Bauchi where he will be receiving traditional treatment.
