Police deny a story that a doctor was shot in Delta.
Police in Delta State have refuted reports that on January 24, one of their officers shot and killed a doctor in the Agbor region of the state.
Adja Harrison, the doctor, said that he had an interaction with a VIP convoy at Agbor on the day of the incident, during which one of the security personnel fired at his vehicle, according to a statement made by the state police command’s spokesperson, DSP Bright Edafe.
Both the identity of the VIP and the security guard who fired the shot are unknown.
According to the doctor’s registration number, the car is a privately registered and not a police vehicle, Edafe stated.
Edafe further stated that an investigation is ongoing to ascertain the identity of the security personnel that carried out the act, adding that it will be wrong to assume that the shooting was done by the police.
“The Command has written to the appropriate authority to furnish us with the details of the vehicle to ascertain the identity of the owner of the vehicle to enable us fish out the perpetrators. The command sues for calm as upon completion of the investigation, the public will be informed” he said
