Policemen Kill South African-based Man For Overtaking Patrol Vehicles In Anambra



A yet-to-be identified young man has been allegedly killed by policemen in Awkuzu, Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra state for overtaking their patrol vehicles.

An eyewitness told newsmen that the deceased who returned to Nigeria from South Africa on Monday was shot immediately he overtook the policemen.

“He was shot in the stomach, he was on a bike, he was shot for overtaking them and they (policemen) ran away,” he said.

Meanwhile, some angry youths on Tuesday blocked major roads in the community, protesting the killing of the young man in circumstances they described as “unacceptable.”

The incident comes a few days after truck drivers blocked the Enugwu-Onicha Expressway following the stabbing of their colleague by a police officer.
