Coronavirus Lockdown: Police Inspector Arrested For Allegedly Killing A Man In Abia State, Nigeria
The Abia State Police Command on Monday confirmed the arrest of Inspector Stanley Azuh attached to Ohuru-Ishimiri Police Division at Ogbor-Hill, Aba, for allegedly killing one Chibuisi Godwin.
It was gathered that Godwin, a staff of Greenman Energy Ltd, a Petroleum Company, was shot while the Inspector was enforcing Abia Government’s ‘Stay at Home’ directive, meant to contain the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state.
The incident happened in Ogbor-Hill, along New Umuahia road in Aba on Sunday evening. The deceased was said to have come out for work as usual, as his line of business was among those classified as essential services, and not restricted by the lockdown order. According to a police source, Azuh, who was attempting to stop a vehicle that violated the lockdown order, had mistakenly touched his riffle’s trigger, releasing the bullet that hit Godwin, who later died in the hospital.
Abia state Police Commissioner, Ene Okon, who confirmed the arrest of the officer said that the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) has taken over the matter. Okon said that the police as an institution does not take such careless attitude to human life lightly.
