A Policeman on stop and search duty at Old – Abakaliki – Enugu Road on Thursday threatened to kill a student of Ebonyi State University and nothing will happen.
IGBERE TV gathered that the student(name withheld) who survives and pays his school fees by riding Keke Napep (Tricycle) after lectures was stopped at Ishieke axis as the policeman demanded 100 naira or he will not be allowed to pass.
When the student tried to explain that he just resumed work and has no money on him yet, the policeman threatened to shoot and nothing will happen.
The student who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity said “When I got there, I told the policeman that I am just resuming work and I have no money on me yet but the policeman refused”.
“He said I have been on duty since morning but I said no, I am just resuming work. He got angry all of a sudden and threatened to shoot me. I had to collect money from one of my passengers and settled him”.
When Igbere TV interviewed other Keke riders, they all lamented that Policemen on stop and search duty in the area have been “taxing” them heavily.
