According to report, the killing took place when the Divisional Police Officer of Agugu Division, Timothy Adedeji (ASP), led a team of officers to quell a misunderstanding between some commercial transporters and hoodlums.

The hoodlums were reportedly extorting money from motorists in the area.

An eyewitness, who craved anonymity, said, “Adedeji with two other policemen prevailed on the aggrieved parties to stop fighting.

“After quelling the crisis the mob started shouting the praises of the DCO. The man (DCO), being an Ibadan man, tried to disperse the mob through persuasion. But when they attempted to attack him, he fired some shots into the air to scare them.

“As he brought his gun out a shot was fired and the bullet hit a man. The man died. The mob swooped on the policemen. They took the police rifle and bolted away.”

Speaking on the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Bisi Ilobanefor, said: “The two policemen were rescued from the mob’s attack. The mob later regrouped and went to Agugu Division, apparently to attack the station. The situation was brought under control through reinforcement.

“The stray bullet from the hoodlums that stole the police gun hit a passerby and unfortunately the person died.”

The PPRO said the rifle taken from the officer had been recovered with six rounds of ammunition, while the injured policemen were receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

She added that the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Muhammed Indawaba, had set up a panel to investigate the incident.
