A trigger-happy mobile Policeman shot and killed a driver of a Toyota Hilux van at Swali market area of Yenagoa, Bayelsa, in a traffic jam. According to reports, the driver, who was identified as Goddy Umorem, was returning to his company’s base at Akaba village when he had an argument with the policeman.

According to eyewitness account, the driver had been passed by a civilian controlling traffic for the construction firm working on the road. However, the policeman who was also attached to the same construction company ordered the late driver to reverse. The driver had then pointed out that he could not reverse because there were vehicles behind him and more so when he had been passed by the traffic. This was said to have angered the policeman who went to the front of the Hilux van and shot him on the head, killing him instantly.

Bayelsa Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Fidelis Odunna (DSP), confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN). According to him, “it is true that the driver died. The officer concerned has been arrested and is with the state C.I.D. I am very sad.”

Meanwhile, the late driver’s employer, Dr Azibapu Eruani, described the incident as unfortunate and asked the police to unravel the circumstances of the death. The remains of the deceased had been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) mortuary in Yenagoa.
