Too Bad! Police Escort Kills Cab Driver In Rivers State (Photos)

A police man escorting a loaded trailer reportedly shot dead a cab driver loading passengers in front of the trailer yesterday, 18th of February, 2018. Some youths from Igbo extraction who identified the victim as their brother blocked the popular East-West road where the incident occured.

Narrating the incident, witnesses said the driver had just returned from church and decided to make a few runs to make some money for the day before the sad incident happened.

One of the passengers who had already entered his taxi, waiting for it to fill, said the driver couldn’t park properly to load his taxi because there were other cars and buses parked haphazardly as well and the touts who call for passengers declared it was okay for him to load there even though a little part of the exterior of his car was still on the road, in the way of coming cars. The space his car took up didn’t stop other cars from passing.

Unfortunately, the space his car left was only enough for cars to pass but not big enough for a trailer. The oblivious driver was still calling for passengers, unaware that he had obstructed the way of the trailer.
Witnesses said the policeman went to him and started beating him, while he tried to clear the way.

As soon as the truck was able to pass, the policeman reportedly turned around to shoot him. The driver died on the spot while the policeman and truck sped away.

The incident happened at  Rumuokoro, by the roundabout in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.
