A trigger-happy police officer attached to a Commercial Bank in Kano state has been accused of killing a man identified as Mus’ab Sammani, pictured above.
According to eyewitnesses, Mus’ab and a tricycle operator were engaged in a heated argument at Niger Avenue, by Mallam Kato Square, after the tricyclist brushed his car.
The accused police officer saw both men arguing and decided to settle their differences. He ordered Mus’ab to drive his car out of the road. When the officer thought the deceased was about to drive off, he corked his gun and threatened to shoot. Sadly, he fired a shot and the bullet peiced through the windscreen and hit the deceased on the neck. Mus’ab died on the spot.
He was rushed to the Mallam Aminu Teaching Hospital (AKTH), where he was pronounced dead.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, said the officer involved has been arrested and investigation has since commenced into the matter.
