There was commotion along Ada George Road in Port Harcourt on Thursday morning as soldiers sacked the Rumukpakani Police Station, allegedly over the killing of their colleague by a policeman.
The murdered soldier, who was in mufti, was said to have been shot near the Police station by one of the policemen on duty. The deceased, identified as Akin, was said to be with his gun and the policeman mistook him for an armed robber.
Without making any findings, he reportedly pumped two bullets into him. It was gathered that the development forced a group of angry soldiers to storm the Police station and arrested the Divisional Police Officer and the murder suspect. Akin’s niece has also since taken to twitter to condemn his murder.
