The Police Command in Ekiti has arrested one of its men, Ayodele Famodimu, who supposedly shot dead a commercial driver on Tuesday.
The police representative, Alberto Adeyemi, told news men in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday that the occurrence happened in Oye Ekiti, Oye Local Government Area of the state.
“He is already facing departmental orderly room trial and when the trial is concluded, he will simply be dismissed after which he will be charged to court,” he said.
Mr. Adeyemi said the policeman murdered the transport driver at a checkpoint.
A witness had however told the News Agency of Nigeria at the scene that the driver was going from Ikara in close-by Ondo State.
“When the driver was hit by the bullet, he lost control of the bus and it somersaulted while the passengers sustained various degrees of injury,” the witness said.
Likewise, Mohammed Olowo, an Assistant Sector Commander at the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ado Ekikti, said the wounds maintained by the travelers were not serious.
