Ekeh Franklyn Nzubechukwu, a young Nigerian, was stabbed by a Nigerian police special forces officer in Edede da Opara Anozie Street in Owerri, Imo state, according to SaharaReporters.
It is learned that the policeman was one of those security details escorting a colorful Prado Sports Utility Vehicle when the event occurred.
The policeman is said to have ordered all drivers to start reversing while trying to maneuver the traffic.
He then used the butt of the gun to hit the victim’s car.
Franklyn was stabbed in the neck by the officer, however, when he claimed that two cars were behind him and that he could not go back.
The victim explained that the officer threatened to shoot his boss when he was about to film the incident, while the policemen fled the scene.
He said the officer stopped a passenger bus at gunpoint and unloaded the passengers as he ran off with the driver.
He said “There was a lot of traffic in Owerri; so the cop who stabbed me was the one with a Prado tinted SUV probably as an escort or something.
“They were trying to maneuver the traffic and he told all the drivers to start reversing, which we did as he instructed, but mine got to a point where I couldn’t turn back because of the two cars that they were behind me.
“When he came to me, he used the tip of his gun to hit the car window and I was forced to whimper and he started whipping me.
“It got to a point where his whips got into my eyes and I got out of the car to ask him if he didn’t see the two cars that were behind me and he pulled out his dagger and stabbed me the first time but the cloth.I was wearing a metal pendant so that it did not pierce, but soon after he stabbed me again.
“When I called my boss and he came over and tried to film the officer and get him, he cocked his gun and shot my boss in the leg and almost ran away.
“The police man cleared a full load of public bus, asked all passengers to get off and ran off with the driver.”
