Man killed by Police because of N100

A motor park tout 'Ahmed'was stabbed to death by an officer on Saturday at Berger Bus stop Lagos State.

Punch gathered that one of Ahmed’s friends had stopped the bus with the inscription, Success Express, and demanded N100 from the driver, who reportedly declined to pay the money.
In the ensuing argument between the driver and the tout, the policeman, who was at the front seat, reportedly got off from the bus.

Later on  Ahmed went to the scene to find out what transpired when suddenly the police man brought out a very sharp knife and stabbed him (Ahmed) in the stomach. He held the policeman for a while and slumped. He stood up, staggered and slumped again. 

“The policeman put on  trousers usually worn by riot policemen,” an eyewitness, Goke Adeleke, said.
Ahmed was said to have been taken in the bus to the Lagos State Accident and Emergency Centre at the Ojota Tollgate, where he was confirmed dead on arrival.

A friend of the deceased, who identified himself as Agberoko, said men of the Rapid Response Squad at the bus stop released tear gas canisters to rescue the killer cop.

People who knew Ahmed recounted how good he was. A trader said “He was very peaceful and jovial. He didn’t force drivers to pay and that the policeman stabbed him with a poisonous knife.

“The suspect has been arrested and it was discovered he is not a policeman.”May Ahmed's soul rest in peace.
