Two armed men operating on a motorcycle on Saturday shot dead a police inspector in Ogidi, near Onitsha in Anambra, police authorities have confirmed. The Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Ogidi Police Station, Mr Hassan Musa, who confirmed the incident, toldnewsmen that the hoodlums collected the AK47 riffle the deceased was carrying.

He said that the incident occurred at about 2.45 p.m. at a police road block near Ugwunwasike Roundabout in Ogidi, where a police team was conducting “stop and search”.  An eyewitness had told newsmen that the armed men took the policeman unawares as they rode straight and shot him at a close range while he was flagging down a vehicle for a search. “Other policemen who were with him took cover on hearing the gun shots while the armed men escaped,” the source said. 

Journalists gathered that the incident, which happened within minutes, caused people in the vicinity, including motorists and commuters, to abandon their vehicle and scamper for safety.  The DPO said that the remains of the late inspector had been deposited at Iyi-Enu Hospital’s mortuary.  He said that the police had commenced investigation into the incident.

Stop and search should be stopped bcoz our police officers are abusing it , using it as great opportunity to intimidate innocent citizens and motorists.

Maybe they where NW tired of the stop and search in the area so they had to warn the police people to leave them alone.
