A police officer on duty along Aliade-Awajir road has shot and killed a motorcyclist, otherwise known as Okada rider.

The victim identified as Friday was killed for interfering while the officer was allegedly arguing with a fellow Okada rider over N50 bribe.

An eyewitness hinted Daily Post that the deceased, who came to the scene to maintain peace, got more than he bargained for as the officer reportedly got angry, pulled the trigger and shot him on the forehead. He died on the spot.

The development sparked violence in the area as youths of the community have threatened to set the police station where the officer is attached on fire.

When the Benue State Police PPRO, Moses Yamu was contacted for comment, he said the command was yet to receive the report and more than 72 hours after the incident the police image spokesman in the food basket state was yet to get back to this reporter.

According to him, “We have not gotten the report. I will find out and get back to you,” he said.

The incident is coming barely one week after two ladies were roasted alive for alleged lesbianism in the state.
