The Police have begun investigation into the allegation that one policeman attempted to open fire on the Commandant-General of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr Ade Abolurin.
This is contained in a statement issued by DCP Emmanuel Ojukwu, the Force Public Relations Officer, on Friday in Abuja.
It said the NSCDC spokesman, Mr Emmanuel Okeh, made the allegation on Friday, saying the incident occurred in Lagos on Friday.

The statement said the members included representatives of the Nigerian Army, EFCC, ICPC and Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, among others. [NAN]
