Man gets shot over N2000 by mobile Police

by Chinwe Okafor

34-year-old Adamu Mohammed got shot by a mobile policeman over an argument of unpaid fees for a menial job summing up to N2000.

According to reports by Vanguard, Mohammed’s family said the victim was shot last Tuesday by the mobile policeman after an argument with a woman who hired him to clear a portion of land close to her home at Erepa Road and dumped at the Federal Medical Centre.

Eyewitnesses say Mohammed was shot in the thigh to demobilise him.

Mohammed, who refused to file a formal complaint against the policeman for fear of retaliation accused the woman who awarded him the menial job of cheating.

Mohammed said: “We agreed on N3,000. But after I finished the work, she said she will pay N1,000. I got angry and she called in some policemen guarding the home of a senior police officer on Erepa Road.

“The first person that came was a Civil Defence man and he claimed I stabbed him, and the mobile policeman, without asking questions, shot me in the thigh.”

The policemen on guard duty at the residence of the unidentified senior officer, pleaded with Mohammed’s family to give them time to raise money for his treatment and leave out formal complaint against them.

Mohammed, according to the family, has since been taken to Bauchi for traditional treatment.
