Police shoot at a driver, but the bullet pierced through website designer jaw in Edo state

A website designer , Martins Omaruna , has been wounded after a yet – to – be – identified policeman shot him in the jaw .

Reports gathered that the policeman was angry that the driver of a commercial bus conveying the victim almost hit him during a stop-and- search at the First Junction area of Benin City , Edo State.

The policeman was said to have aimed his gun at the driver and opened fire ; however, the bullet hit Martins in the jaw .

The 24 – year – old Martins, who told our correspondent that he could no longer eat or talk properly as his jaw had to be stitched , demanded the arrest and prosecution of the trigger-happy cop.

Recounting his ordeal , Martins stated , “There was traffic around the First Junction area of Benin on Friday, May 1 , 2020 , due to the checkpoint that was mounted there and the driver of the commercial bus that was conveying me tried to avoid the traffic and in a bid to stop him , one of the policemen stood in front of his bus and because the driver stopped abruptly , the bus almost hit him .

“ The policeman got angry and shot at the driver, but the bullet pierced through my jaw and immediately the cops at the checkpoint realised what had happened , they took to their heels and left us to our fate.

It was a good Samaritan , who took me to the nearest police station to report the incident and from there, I was taken to the Central Hospital , Benin, from where I was referred to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital.

“ My jaw was stitched at the UBTH ; I cannot eat or talk well with my lips .

I ’ m in pain .

I want the policeman who shot me to be found and prosecuted , because he has given me a lifetime scar. ”

Martins’ mother, Helen Omoruna , who lamented the amount she had spent since the incident happened , also called for the arrest and prosecution of the cop.

She stated, “ The police said I should be keeping the receipts of the medical bills , nobody is taking care of the bills , I don’ t have money , I am a widow trying to survive with my children and they have not arrested the policeman who shot my son .

“ I don’ t know why the policeman would shoot my son ; if he wanted to stop the bus , he should have shot at the tyre and not at a human being .

I want justice to be served . ”

Reports learnt that the matter was reported at the Adesua Division.
However , when contacted , the Edo State Police Public Relations Officer , Chidi Nwabuzor, claimed that the man , who shot Martins , was not a personnel of the Edo State Police Command.

“ The person , who shot the young man , is not by any means related to the Nigeria Police Force , Edo State Command.

It was between the vigilante group and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the matter was reported at the Adesua Division , where investigation is ongoing. ”
