‘Accident discharge’ is the Nigerian slogan for wrongful murders. The Nigerian Police Force is known for perpetuating some of the most horrific acts known to man and they do not look like stopping anytime soon.
During a year in which we ended SARS or forced a political move that "overhauled" SARS, we need to solve the problem that is the Nigerian police. Again, the Nigerian Police has struck another deathly blow of careless discharge. A member of the Rivers State Police Command has shot a man in the leg.
According to the person who broke the news, Chibuzo ‘King Absolute’ Anthony who tweets @KingAbsolute narrated that the man who was shot was traveling to Lagos when the office flagged the bus he was traveling in. There was then an altercation before the policeman shot the unidentified man in the leg for arguing with him.
King Absolute also accompanied the post with a video. He narrated that, “A policeman shot a traveler in the leg on East-West Road, Rumuge area of Port Harcourt. A witness said they were traveling to Lagos when said officer flagged their bus for checks. In the ensuing argument, the officer shot the unarmed traveler for daring to question him.”
