Policeman shoots 34 year old man overN2,000

A mobile policeman in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, allegedly shot
a 34-year-old Adamu Mohammed, over an argument of N2,000 unpaid fees for a menial job.

According to Mohammed’s family, the victim was shot last
Tuesday by the mobile policeman after an argument with a
woman who hired him to clear a portion of land close to her
home at Erepa Road and dumped at the Federal Medical
Centre.

Residents who claimed to have witnessed the incident, said
the shooting took place after an argument ensued with
the woman over the amount to pay for the job and
Mohammed’s squabble with a Nigeria Security and Civil
Defence Corps, NSCDC, officer.

They said the policeman shot him in the thigh to demobilise
him.


Mohammed, who refused to file a formal complaint against
the policeman for fear of retaliation accused the woman who
awarded him the menial job of cheating.

Mohammed said: “We agreed on N3,000. But after I
finished the work, she said she will pay N1,000. I got
angry and she called in some policemen guarding the
home of a senior police officer on Erepa Road.

“The first person that came was a Civil Defence man
and he claimed I stabbed him, and the mobile
policeman, without asking questions, shot me in the
thigh.”

The policemen on guard duty at the residence of the
unidentified senior officer, pleaded with Mohammed’s family
to give them time to raise money for his treatment and leave
out formal complaint against them.

Mohammed, according to the family, has since been taken to
Bauchi for traditional treatment.

When the spokesman of the state Police Command, Asimi
Butswat, was contacted for comments, he said though he
was not aware of any formal complaint by the purported
victim, the action of the victim was suspicious and has the
semblance of an armed robbery suspect.
