From TUNDE RAHEEM Akure

Peace was momentarily disturbed at Ijapo/Oke-Ijebu and Plaza areas of Akure on Tuesday evening, following the killing of a pregnant woman by a police man. Some policemen were said to have been at Ijapo/Okeijebu junction, directing vehicular traffic when his gun , AK-47 rifle, suddenly fell down and started discharging bullets.

The police officers took to their heels to avoid being hit by the bullets while other people around ran in different directions for safety. One of the bullets from the gun hit a pregnant woman who was inside a commercial bus and she allegedly died instantly. The policemen carried the pregnant woman to a nearby hospital where she was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty. Apparently angered by the development, youths in the areas mobilized themselves and attacked one of the policemen when he came back to pick up the gun. He was manhandled before his colleagues called for reinforcement and rescued him.

The police action, however, worsened the situation as angry youths thereafter set ablaze the police post at Ijapo and destroyed the gate to the Estate. They later moved to the divisional police station Ijapo where they sacked the police officers on duty. The Ijapo axis of Oke-Ijebu area was barricaded while bonfires were made in some of the critical junctions by the angry youths.

The men of the Nigeria Army Fast-Track squad 35 Artillery Brigade, Akure who came to rescue the embattled police officers had a hectic time preventing the youths from setting the police station ablaze. Meanwhile, women lawyers, Akure chapter yesterday staged a protest over the death of the pregnant woman. The lawyers described the killing as callous and wicked by the police officer, warning the police to desist from wasting innocent souls.

The killer policeman has been arrested and detained at the state CID for integration. Command spokesman Wole Ogodo ( ASP) while confirming the story said the police officer had faced orderly trial and he had been dismissed from the police force The PPRO said that the killer police will be charged to court today (Thursday ) for murder He said the police will not tolerate any act of indiscipline capable of denting the image of the police adding that any police officer who involve any act of indiscipline will be summarily dismissed

  1. The killer police must be charged for multiple murder, at first the woman involved and then the baby inside either single , twins or by triplets. This erring police officer must be confined to stand all these trials, these police elements has systematically waged a cold war against the masses for no justifiable reason(s) stupor.

    How are we sure that what the police spokeman said about the dismissal and charging to court of the killer policeman is true ? Police are not reliable, this should be an excuse to cool down the tension and may the killer police has been transfer out of the state, don’t and never rely or trust police.

  3. The innocent woman died because of N20 or N100 the policeman was trying to collect. May the gentle soul of the woman and her unborn child rest in peace. Amen The Police are back on the road collecting bribes. On Tuesday, April 2nd on Shagamu-Ore Road, several policemen were on the road, stopping motorist for frivolous offences and taken them to their Station where bribes were collected from several motorist in collaboration with the DPO at the Station. Police is our worst enemy

  4. I only hope the dismissal is not fathom,police is terrible only shooting innocent people at close range but cannot face robbers.

  5. Wel if at all that the killer policeman is facing trials that has made him a deterrant of others.oh woman may your gentle soul rest in peace amen.

    It was never an accidental discharge because the police man corked, aimed and triggered his rifle. He wanted to shot at the commercial driver when the bloody civilian in uniform missed his target.
