A police station in Igboukwu, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State has been set ablaze following the alleged killing of a commercial motorcyclist locally called Okada man by a policeman.


The station was set on fire around 8am on Wednesday, eyewitnesses said.

The policeman, it was gathered, shot the motorcyclist on Tuesday for failing to give him bribe.

Anambra police spokesman Haruna Mohammed confirmed the incident, saying the police commissioner John Abang had ordered the arrest of the policeman who fired the shot.

He said,” On Tuesday about 10.30pm, there was an altercation between police operatives and motorcycle riders over some impounded motorcycles as a result of the recent restriction on movement of motorcycles beyond 9 pm in the State.

‌“The situation degenerated into chaos which led to an accidental discharge that hit one motorcycle rider and burning of the Igboukwu police station by irate youth.

“The Commissioner of Police, John Abang, is deeply saddened by the unfortunate incident and has ordered the detention of the policemen involved and full-scale investigation into the matter.

“The CP further appealed for calm and assures the public that justice would be done in the case and the outcome of police investigation shall be made public in due course.”
