Taxi driver killed by stray bullet in Rivers

Ogbogoro com­munity in Obio-Akpor local gov­ernment area of Rivers state has been thrown into pandemonium following the killing of a cab driver, Ngozi Dennis by stray bul­let.
The people of the com­munity took to the streets breaking bottles and dis­rupting flow of traffic as a result of the Killing.
Eyewitness told news­men that men of the Spe­cial Anti-Robbery squad, SARS stormed the com­munity and started shoot­ing sporadically.
The eyewitness said the stray bullet hit Denis who was on his way to the com­munity.
He said it’s yet to be ascertained why SARS stormed the community, adding that there has been no recent incident of crime in the area.
Son of the killed cab driver, Joshua Dennis told newsmen that his deceased father was indis­criminately shot by SARS officials.
He denied claims that his father was a culprit, “It is not true. My father is a taxi driver. He loads passengers from Ozuoba to Ogbogoro here. Every­body knows him. The po­lice must explain why they came into our community.
When contacted, the Spokesman of the Rivers state Police Command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni re­fused comment on the matter.
