Police Allegedly Shot An Artiste On His Way To The Headies

Dec 14th, my friend, an upcoming
musician whom I happen to be his manager
with stage name (3in1) had fully prepared for
headies award in a big time after having an
Expensive category of tickects for ourselves.
I resides in an estate within agric area of
ikorodu while my friend (Victim) resides in
another faraway part of Ikorodu, we had a
conclusion to go to the Headies Award with
my own car and we also concluded to leave
ikorodu as early as possible because of the
Around 11:30AM, I was already waiting for
him at a eatery within the premises of
MALLO GAS STATION Agric area of Ikorodu,
So he had to board a commercial car (Cab)
down to where I awaits him, About 11:55AM
after he gave me a call he's already around
Agric Junction, to my understanding, where
he said he was is just a 3 mins drive to
where I was waiting for him. View minutes
after,Suddenly I saw a security guy working
for the eatery where I was and he told me I
have somebody looking for me outside.
Getting out I saw my friend screaming and
shouting in Pain, "yemmy, I have been shot
by Police at Agric Junction, take me to the
Hospital" at this point, I wasn't myself, the
whole body system of mine is no more
functioning well. I asked the driver, The driver
said one of the police men from Owutu
division of agric Ikorodu fired his car because
they stopped him for their regular money of
#2,000 the police men in that area uses to
collect from every cab driver they caught
taking passenger from the Junction and he
tried to dodge their attack. Saying further
because #2,000 is too early for him to pay
on a Sunday morning.I was actually asking
these questions while we are heading to the
Hospital. At the point, I was the only one with
my friend, I would have loved to go back to
scene where the incident happened because
the scene and where I was is just about 2 to
3 mins drive at time but I had to rescue the
life of my friend because he was bleeding
heavily from his leg.
I rushed him down to my family hospital
within the area for first aid. We were later
reffered to the General Hospital Ikorodu for
better treatment. On our way to the General
hospital after the first aid has been taken, we
branched at the Owutu divisional Police
where those Police men were set from, And
also that's the only police command covering
the area of the scene, But it was my surprise
that the D.T.O acting as a D.P.O for that
Police division said non of his boys fired.
I laughed, and I further asking him "can any
police come to this territory to operate or do
anything without your knowledge?" No
response from him, he ordered the inspector
Available then to give us a Medical letter to
be taken to the general hospital for better
treatment. Yet they insist they were the one
shot my friend.
We left the Police stattion to the General
hospital for better treatment, Getting there
my friend's family was aready there in
numerous numbers. We took 3in1 to the
ward where he was to be treated.
Then myself and some members of his
family together with the Cab driver( driver of
the victim) went back to that Owutu police
station, One of the family memember who is
also a military officer Ordered the D.P.O to
take a roll call for police men attached to that
Junction of incudent. He invited the the three
policemen, and immediately the driver I
dentified the Police that fired, but the man
Police man denied. After that DPO ordered a
senior Police officer present there to check
and count the bullet present in the AK 47
riffle the accused officer had with him,
Unfortunately for him 19 bullets was found in
his Bullet pad. Whereas other two police
officers there also presented theirs and it
was counted 20 bullets. The question Us the
victim family was how come to the 19 bullets
of the accused officer while others were
having 20 bullets.
Biggest surprise was that the DPO said
openly that 19 bullets was assigned to him
before he left the station.  They denied again.
My fellow Nigerians see cover up. See how
those people appointed to safe guide our
lives exposes our lives to Danger.
Now the Question are : How can a police man
operate in that territory without an approval
from the Divisional Police within. Or How can
any police man fire loudly in a broad-day
without the knowledge of the Divisional Police
incharge the area. How come to the missing
of one bullet from the twenty bullets it
suppose to be that makes it nineteen.
NIGERIANS please come to our aid. We need
your intervention. We need to stop this illegal
acts of harrasement by the Nigerian Police
Men. We are Nigerians, we employed them to
protect us.
