“‘An eye witness who spoke under anonymity alleged that; the commercial tricycle (keke Napep) operator was trying to overtake a black Jeep and mistakenly scratched the vehicle. Then a fully armed policeman came down from the black jeep to attack the tricycle operator, and out of fear all the passengers ran for their lives.
“The policeman allegedly chased after the fleeing passengers, shot two out of the three and left serious gunshot wound on the tricycle operator who is now battling for his life in the hospital as we speak.
“The State Governor will not order the killing of armless innocent citizens for any reason and we see no justification for such senseless killing. if not addressed, it will degenerate into indiscriminate killing by those who want to intimidate the ordinary citizens.
” We are calling on the Delta State Police Command to investigate and prosecute the killer who was reported to be escorting a yet to be identified fellow in a black Toyota Prado Jeep with a covered plate number. They have to unearth the person that was being escorted and the killer arrested and made to face Justice.”
