Protest in Abuja community as police kill businessman

There was a violent protest in the Karmo area of Abuja on Monday following the alleged killing of a businessman, Solomon Eze, by a police officer, who was killed on Sunday evening.

Angry residents of the area reportedly stoned an Assistant Commissioner of Police and Abuja Municipal Area Council officials who visited the community to pacify the people.

Some youths were also said to have attempted to burn down the police post in the community.

It was gathered that the police were at Karmo to arrest some suspects in connection with an investigation when some people attempted to stop them from taking the suspects away.

A policeman reportedly fired in the air and the deceased was hit by a bullet.

The Federal Capital Territory police spokesman, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, confirmed the incident, adding that the officer who killed Eze had been taken into custody.
