A police officer is facing severe criticisms online for shooting a Bus Passenger on the leg.
PoliticsNGR gathered from an eyewitness, Mike Godwin, the incident occurred on the Popular East-West road around Rumuge area. The police officer stopped the bus and demanded for a tinted permit. The driver unfortunately did not have it on him and the officer halted the vehicle.
The victim decided to talk with the officer and demand an explanation for the stoppage before he was shot on the leg. Godwin wrote;
“This happened on my way for Lagos yesterday on east west road by Rumuge, A police man stopped our bus asking for drivers license from our driver which he gave him after that , he requested for tinted permit then the driver told him that the car is a company car and that the copy of the permit was not with him.
We all came down pleading with him to let us go, but he bluntly refused. On seeing us another of same company bus stoped to ask his colleague what the issue was along side with some passengers the next thing was that the police man opened fire on the leg of this young man who was also presumed to be a force man just because he demanded an explanation on why we were unjustly delayed. Am yet to recover from the shock can’t believe that the people that are meant to protect lives and properties, can just open fire and shot at a live that they are to protect. Pls share let those in authority see it.”
