Policeman kills colleague over N20,000 bribe

Disagreement over DPO’s share

A policeman (name withheld) with the Bayelsa State command has shot dead his colleague (name also withheld) over N20, 000 bribe.

The incident occurred yesterday morning following an argument over the sharing formula.

The duo went on an operation where they were rewarded with N20, 000.

The deceased advised that they should give their Divisional Police Officer (DPO) part of the money, while the other objected.

While the argument ensued, the enraged police officer allegedly shot him.

The deceased, a native of Ondewari community in southern Ijaw Local Government area of  the state, is survived by two wives and children.

His remains have been deposited at the morgue of Federal Medical Center, Yenagoa.

Sympathisers were seen trooping to his residence at Swali to pay condolences to his family.

Some of them, described him as a “jolly good fellow.’’

When contacted, the spokesman for the command, Mr Asinim Butswat, said he was yet to be briefed on the incident.
