Chaos As Trigger-happy Policeman Kills Taxi Driver In Port-harcourt by Sleempapa(m): 7:25pm On Feb 18
Chaos has erupted in Rumuokoro roundabout in
Obio-Akpor Local government area of Rivers
State following the killing of a taxi driver by a
trigger-happy policeman.

The Policeman attached to a detachment of
officers escorting a Petrol Tanker reportedly
shot dead the unnamed driver for obstructing
their movement.

It was gathered that passengers were in
the cab when the unfortunate incident occurred
but none of the passengers was injured.
Eyewitnesses say the cab drivers plying the
Rumuokoro axis and motor-park touts
regrouped immediately after the incident.

Other commercial drivers and motor park touts
responded by blocking all roads connecting
Rumuokoro roundabout and threatening to
unleash violence.

One of the eyewitnesses say the touts stopped
Police officers reinforced from Rumuokoro
Divisional Police Station from evacuating the
body of the slain driver.
Another eyewitness said the touts started
attacking everyone perceived to be from
Northern Nigeria because they perceived that
the trigger happy officer is a Northerner.

“After they have stopped the police from
carrying the lifeless body of the driver, those
touts started attacking ‘Aboki’ people that are
pushing wheelbarrows. That was why SARS
people came to stop them because they had
started destroying Aboki shops too,” he said.
The development prompted more police
reinforcement from the Anti Kidnapping Unit
and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad to quell
possible breakdown of law and order in the
area.

The Rivers State Police Command is yet to
respond to the unfortunate incident.
