The Policeman, Corporal Mough Tergwu, who was allegedly shot by an operative of the Department of State Services (DSS) for refusing to be disarmed, has been moved to a safer location.

Punch Newspapers reports that a police source said “He (Tergwu) has been evacuated from the hospital for continuous treatment. He is the only survivor of the gun attacks. We don’t want to lose him because he is very dear to us. He would also aid in the investigation and prosecution of the suspects.”

The police also accused the Director of DSS, in the state, Mr Duke Fubara of refusing to produce the officer who shot Sgt. Sylvester Malik and Corporal Mough Tergwu.

Sgt. Malik reportedly died as a result of the gun shot wound he sustained during the scuffle.

The Ekiti Police Public Relations Officer,Mr Alberto Adeyemi speaking on the matter said  “In fact, the DSS is shielding the suspect and we are still waiting for them to hand him over to us. The two policemen were fired at and one of them pretended as if he had died and he heard all their conversations.

“Is there any law in the land that says one should be killed for escorting someone to a barrack or command base?

“Looking at it from professional angle, dropping of arms is even unprofessional. The DSS alleged that the victims refused to be disarmed and they had to struggle with them and claimed that one of them was injured in the process. We are waiting for them to produce the injured to confirm their claims.”

The mission statement of the police is to provide safety and security in Nigerian communities; protect and respect human rights, and promote community partnership in preventing and controlling social disorder.
