CCTV reveals how policemen killed painter in Rivers

A painter, Mr. Ese Akpan, had told his family on Tuesday that he was going out to get the money owed him by a construction company. He, however, did not get to his destination, as he was killed by a stray bullet from a police team escorting a bullion van to a bank.  According to a Closed-Circuit Television camera, which captured the scene, Ese was shot at exactly 1.45pm on Old Aba Road, Rumuomasi, Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.

PUNCH Metro, which obtained footage of the incident, observed that Camera 4 captured Ese as he walked along the road while the police van came behind. The second side, captured by Camera 1, showed a woman with a baby standing at the bus stop as Ese approached. There was a sudden gunshot which hit the 60-year-old, while the frightened woman fled the sight.


About two minutes afterwards, some sympathisers, including workers of First Rivers Hospital Limited, a private facility in front of which the incident occurred, rushed to help the victim.
