by ‘Jola Sotubo


An offensive against robbers in Bayelsa went awry after an officer of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) shot and killed a police officer.

The deceased and the shooter were jointly assigned to ‘Operation Door Akpor’, a special state security outfit.

The unfortunate incident occurred in Yenagoa, the state capital during a shootout between security forces and armed robbers who had attacked a petrol station.

According to Sahara Reporters:

Police public relations officer in the state, Mr. Alex Akhigbe, who confirmed the incident, described the death of the policeman as an unfortunate mishap.

“Last Monday night, the police received a distress call that armed robbers had attacked a petrol station at Edepie roundabout in the state capital.

“When the patrol team got there, the robbers opened fire on sighting the police van, so there was a shoot-out, and in the process, the civil defense personnel mistakenly shot his patrol team colleague,” Akhigbe said.
