The police command in Plateau has arrested an inspector, Solomon Damak, for shooting a man, Nyommena Salah, over an election argument
Mr Salah is a resident of the Tudun Wada community of Jos North council area of Plateau.
Alfred Alabo, the state police spokesperson, confirmed the arrest in a statement on Monday in Jos.
The statement said the victim did not die but sustained serious injuries from the gunshots and added that he was currently receiving treatment at the Bingham University Teaching Hospital, Jos.
The police spokesperson described the officer’s action as ‘unprofessional’.
”The circumstance that led to the infliction of the gun injury by the recalcitrant officer does not fit into his professional calling. It was done out of vindictiveness which contradicts the attributes of a Nigeria Police officer,” said the statement.
It added, ”In order to ensure that the officer does not evade justice, he has been arrested. His firearm recovered, and he has since been detained for disciplinary action.”
The statement explained that police commissioner Bartholomew Onyeka ordered his arrest, adding that he had directed the Divisional Police Officer of the ‘A’ Division and other officers to visit the victim at the hospital to ascertain his condition and make arrangements to pay his medical bills.
”As part of wholesome practice in the force, the erring officer has been defaulted, and his orderly room trial will commence today, March 6,” the police said.
The police commissioner promised that the disciplinary process would not be compromised and the outcome would be made public.
He further advised the public to remain calm and be law-abiding as the command was poised to protect the lives and property of all Plateau residents.
