The trigger-happy policeman who killed a young Keke Napep journey at Rukpokwu area of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers state, has been detained.
LIB reported earlier that the policeman was accused of shooting the commercial tricyclist for refusing to present him N100 bribe within the early hours of today, December 10.
Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, Nnamdi Omoni who confirmed the incident urged residents to stay calm as justice shall be served on the incident. He added that policemen have been deployed to the area to revive calm and include an additional breakdown of law and order.
“I am aware of the incident at Rukpoku. One of our men killed a Keke rider this morning. The policeman has been disarmed and he is detained now.
“We have mobilised our men in the area to restore calm and contain a further breakdown of law and order.
“We are pleading for calm to allow us to bring him to justice. Two wrongs can never make a wrong. The Keke driver has died and the man who killed him must receive his punishment.
“Killing a policeman or burning down a station cannot bring him back to life or give him justice, instead it will deteriorate the situation.”
