Policeman shoots colleague dead in Jos

A mobile policeman attached to the Special Task Force in Jos shot and killed his colleague on Saturday. Two other people were also said to have been injured in the shooting, which occurred in the early hours of Saturday in Jol, Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The injured people, who had not been identified as at the time of this report, were said to be on danger list at Vom Christian Hospital, near Jos.

The Executive Director of Stefanos Foundation, Mr. Mark Lipdo, told our correspondent that they had yet to understand the motive of the shooting.

Plateau State Police Commissioner, Mr. Chris Olakpe, told our correspondent that investigations were on to ascertain the cause of the incident.

He said, “I am right now addressing the men to calm them down so that the incident will not dampen their spirit. We will not like anything that will affect their morale, especially at this time we are preparing for a crucial task of the local government elections in the state. The incident is highly regrettable and we want to ensure that it does not happen again.”
