The owner of this car was shot dead in his car on his way to uyo by a military man he grated a ride yesterday from Eleme junction in PH , to Ikot Abasi in Akwa Ibom state . He thought this military man will help him through all the multiple check point along Ogoni Road I guess.
The army man never new this car was tracked, a device that was duly activated by security operatives and he was pick up at one hotel in Ukanafun LGA this morning. The military hierarchy was at the state police headquarters today to pick him up for firstly, a Court Marshal before handing him over to the police for prosecution .
I witnessed this process at Ikot Akpan Abia police headquarters today. We need to be circumspect as we give lift to not just security men on the road but just anybody. Some sad stuff, isn’t it.
