A police Inspector identified as Afang Luke has accidentally shot dead a junior colleague, Corporal Chinonso Okafor, in Delta State.
Our reporter learnt that the incident happened on Tuesday at about 4:30 pm.
The Congress news Nigeria gathered that the Delta State Police Tactical Squad was on their usual patrol at Mosogar, Sapele when they intercepted some persons suspected to be cultists.
The men were said to have made an attempt to run away when they sighted the police team.
A police source told our correspondent that in a bid to arrest the men, Luke accidentally shot Okafor from the rear.
“Inspector Luke was trying to stop the boys from escaping, but he accidentally shot Corporal Okafor at the back. It was an accidental discharge,” the source said.
