A yet-to-be-identified Nigeria policeman in the driver’s seat of a Toyota Sienna car has crushed another man with his vehicle.
This is contained in a viral video on social media.
A viral WhatsApp message accompanying the video on the incident reads: “Good day everyone this happened yesterday at Ekpoma. (Edo state). The victim was driving a car without plate number and all the police could do is handcuff him, lie him on the floor and roll over him with their patrol car…. This is inhuman ”
The incident reportedly occurred at Ekpoma, Edo State, Nigeria.
Amid sketchy details, the man was seen lying down in front of the car while other people surrounded the vehicle and suddenly, the police driver put the car in motion.
While those standing by attempted to halt the car’s movement to halt the murder attempt, the police driver continued and ran over the helpless man.
As of the time of filing the report, the man is said to be battling for his life at an undisclosed hospital.
Meanwhile, the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has called for urgent action after the horrifying video caught his attention.
He simply described the incident unbelievable, strange and ‘unpolice.’
He added that the Edo State Police Commissioner has been contacted and urgent action is being taken on the matter.
