Shi’ites and Police Clash in Abuja left Scores Wounded and Deputy Commissioner of Police Shut Dead.
It was such a dreadful day in Abuja the Federal Capital Territory, as members of Islamic Shi’ites clashed with men of the Nigerian Police leaving scores wounded and many others dead.
In what was seems to be a peaceful protest, later metamorphosed to a blood sucking protest, The Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Abuja Command, DCP Umar was shot dead by the Shi’ite members who fired gunshots sporadically while the DCP was trying to calm the situation.
Channel TV crew who were present at the scene confirmed that one of their reporter has been shot in the stomach and is currently receiving treatment in the hospital.
Information Drillers gathered that the DCP was rushed to hospital and was later confirmed dead on the arrival.
“The DCP was a very good man. We were at the mosque last Friday when he saw one man looking so haggard. The man told him how he had not been paid for over 14 months because he was unable to complete his IPPIS (Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information.)
“On hearing that the man was an Inspector, DCP Umar hugged him and immediately made calls to the officers in charge of the platform and the budget office. Today, the Inspector has been directed to come to the IPPIS office for enrollment on the platform. His death is so shocking.” FCT Police Command said.
