An unknown policeman Thursday killed a truck owner, Dan Jos at the Tin Can Island Port in Lagos state. The deceased reportedly reprimanded the policeman who was alleged to have openly urinated on the body of stationary truck.
An eyewitness, Kabiru Alaba, said the policeman was slighted and called his colleagues to the scene.
Alaba said the incident “led to an altercation and he (the policeman) called his colleague from the division, who came and shot Alhaji in his thigh”. Jos died of his wound.
The death sparked a protest by members of the Road Transport Employee Association of Nigeria, RTEAN.
The RTEAN Chairman, Tin Can Island Chapter, Isiaka Olalere confirmed the death of his member.
