A policeman in Rivers state has been accused of killing a 29-year-old commercial bus driver, Stephen Udeh, whose wife is said to be heavily pregnant.
According to SaharaReporters, Stephen hailed from Sagbama Local Council Area of Bayelsa and worked at Ekeki Motor Park in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital. He was shot and killed by a policeman along Ahoada axis of the East-West Road area of Rivers state on Thursday April 4th.
An eyewitness said
”He stopped at a checkpoint and he came out. While walking towards the policemen, one of them shot at him. And, that was it. However, it is good to hear that the colleagues of the guy who shot the deceased arrested him immediately,”
Another source said the deceased is an expectant father whose wife is eight months pregnant.
”It occurred between Ahoada and Mbiama in Rivers State. Incidentally, information has it that both the 29-year-old deceased and the policeman are from Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. Now, how to break the sad and unfortunate incident to the eight months pregnant wife of the deceased is a problem,” he said.
