Mob kills policeman for shooting passenger in Adamawa

A mob on Thursday killed a police inspector along the Wuro-Dole-Pariya Road in Girei local government area of Adamawa State.
The Spokesman of Adamawa State Police Command, Othman Abubakar, said the incident occurred following a misunderstanding between some bus passengers and a routine patrol team along the road.
Abubakar, who did not give details of the misunderstanding, said it led to the deceased opening fire which killed one of the passengers.
He said the late inspector was mobbed to death, adding that the police had recovered his corpse and gun with eight rounds of live ammunition.An eyewitness, who simply identified himself as Sadiq, said the incident followed a disagreement over a N50 bribe.
According to him, the driver of the vehicle in which the late passenger was travelling in offered a N50 bribe to the policemen but they insisted on collecting N100.
He said a passenger challenged them and that led to a hot argument.
“The deceased policeman shot the passenger and injured another person in the bus.
“Angry about what happened, a mob attacked the inspector who was trying to escape and lynched him,” Sadiq said.
