Pictured is the corpse of Abeeb Dauda, a 20-year-old tiler in the Amukoko area of Lagos State, who was allegedly shot dead by a policeman attached to the Amukoko Police Division.
The alleged killer cop, identified simply as Salako, was also said to have shot Abeeb’s wife, Lateefat, in the chest.
It was learnt that Salako and his colleagues had stormed Lasisi Street, Amukoko, where the incident happened around 5pm on Sunday, after they received a distress call about a street fight in the area.
The policemen were said to have announced their presence in the neighbourhood with gunshots, which caused confusion among the residents.
In the ensuing panic, Abeeb, a father of two, reportedly rushed to his wife’s shop on the street to assist in packing her wares into the store.
It was learnt that as the couple were closing the shop, Salako surfaced, took Abeeb for one of the troublemakers and shot at him and his wife.
The bullet reportedly hit Abeeb in the stomach and ripped out his entrails, while his wife was hit in the chest.
