A trigger-happy police officer on patrol at Kubwa, Abuja, allegedly shot and killed a father of one, Onybuchi Anele, with a teargas canister after a minor incident involving a motorcyclist on Wednesday night. Leadership reports that the incident happened close to Haj Estate, where the deceased lived with his young wife and daughter. An eyewitness, who spoke on condition of anonymity said

‘’The deceased, while on his way home, hit an okada man and his passenger and after stopping and making sure the accident victims were okay, decided to head home in the Haj Estate when policemen arrived the scene.”

The eyewitness further explained that trouble started when the policemen who arrived the scene, decided that the deceased must follow them to their station even after the okada man and his passenger had left the scene to go. The ensuing altercation triggered quarrel, which led to the policeman shooting the teargas canister into the eye of the deceased at a close range. The witness explained that the church members of the deceased and his neighbours in the estate came out and rushed him to Kubwa General Hospital after which he was referred to National Hospital, where he eventually died around 8am on Thursday, May 23.

Friends of the deceased, who were in the hospital with him until his death, said the issue has affected his wife emotionally. “The woman started behaving as if she wanted to get mad. Small time she will sit, a little more time she moves with force and starts running away. She was smuggled into a vehicle and hurriedly whisked away. We had to deceive her that her husband was still alive whereas the corpse had been deposited in the mortuary,” one of his friends, Ndubuisi Nwaneri, said. The FCT police command is yet to comment on the incident.
