How Police Officer Shot And Killed Soldier In Port Harcourt
According to an Eye Witness, Tony Osborg, the incident happened on the eve of Wednesday, May 16, 2018 around the Ada George axis of the garden city.
Read report below.
A Police officer on a check point identified a civilian with a gun. Police Officer points gun at civilian and ready to fire. Civilian says I am army officer, don’t shoot, I am an officer. Before army officer would try to identify himself, he is shot dead by the police officer.
It turns out to be true that the man on mufti (civilian) was indeed an army officer.
This happened Wednesday night.
As expected, the army heard of the incident and decided to launch an attack yesterday morning against the Nigerian Police. The attack was against the entire police division and part of the community.
I came across the attack on my way to an official assignment yesterday.
Surprisingly, I was in my company police fitted Hilux vehicle and was approaching the police station where the army had laid a siege. It was unusual for that particular part of Ada George Road to be locked up in an early morning traffic. My driver, by his own premonition decided to make a U-Turn.
It was later in the day that I was informed about the reason for that traffic.
May we never run into a situation where we would become casualty of two crazy security institutions trying to do to themselves what they have been doing to Nigerians.
By the way, is it right for an Army officer on mufti to move about with a gun, and is there no procedure a police officer must follow before opening fire even on a criminal?
