Angry mobile police shot his superior for cautioning him
A mobile policeman in Bauchi state has been arrested for shooting his superior to death on February 26th in Bauchi after his superior questioned him about his inappropriate dressing.
According to family sources, Superintendent of Police, Chris Eza had gone out to get food at an eatery along Ahmadu Bello way around 9pm when he saw some police officers on patrol.
On observation, he found out that one of them, the suspect, was not properly dressed and immediately cautioned him. The junior officer, a Corporal, got angry and began to grumble about being told to dress properly.
An angry Chris felt his action was unacceptable and warned the officer that he was going to disarm him if he didn't take care.
Instead of apologizing, the junior officer cocked his gun and threatened to shoot his boss.
He told Eza that if he came close to him, he would shoot.
Calling his bluff, Eza moved towards the officer, immediately opened fire on him.
Other officers around rushed Chris to the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital Bauch, where he was declared dead on arrival.
Until his death, he was the MOPOL 11 Commander.
The officer has since been arrested and investigations into the motive for the killing is ongoing, lidaikeji reported.
