The Police are presumed to be friends of the masses but somehow misunderstandings that occur between the two destroy the beautiful relationship and bring about animosity.
This incident involving a commercial motor rider and a policeman this morning at Taifa would have been prevented if the latter had obeyed a simple order.
The police officer instructed an okada motorbike operator to stop and but his unwillingness to comply made the Police officer chase him in the street.
According to Angel News correspondent, the okada driver had wanted to escape and he was followed keenly by the officer who was also on a motorbike.
Luck eluded the Okada driver when the Policeman caught up with him and hit the motorbike which he was riding. He felled and crashed in the middle of the road. An oncoming vehicle hit him and he sustained serious injuries. His leg was broken and eventually conveyed to the hospital in a pickup truck.
In a video shown the angry mob manhandled the police officer for causing the death of their colleague who was pronounced dead later.
This is really sad and as citizens, we are encouraged to abide by the laws of the country and respect law enforcers. A little exercise of patience and discretion would have averted this unfortunate incident.
