On Monday, July 27, 2015 a police officer from the Okene division in Kogi state, shot a mechanic who was on his way to his workshop.
The victim was said to be on his way to work when the policeman beckoned on him to stop but he refused. As a result of his, the police officer allegedly fired three shots at him, hitting him on the leg and other parts of his body.
In defense, the police officer claimed that the mechanic made attempts to take his riffle from him but witnesses disclosed that, this was not true as the man was a little far from the police when he was shot.
However, the victim is reportedly in a critical condition and is presently receiving treatment at the Specialist Hospital, Lokoja.
