An operative of the Department of State Services has reportedly killed one Onyeocha Umuokwu, in Alor Community, Idemili South LGA of Anambra State.
It was gathered that the incident happened on Christmas Day.
The officer, it was gathered, allegedly fired a cow that was running away from a VIP’s house, but missed his target and the bullet hit the victim.
A source , who may have mistaken the DSS officer for a policeman, said “Onyeocha Umuokwu was shot by a police officer at Mr. Emeka Eze’s house on 25th December 2019, in Alor.
“A cow cut the rope they tied it, and started running. A police officer on duty aimed to shoot the cow, but mistakenly shot and killed Onyeocha Umuokwu, so painful.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, in a statement on Friday, dispelled the claim that it was a policeman that committed the act.
