0

An angry mob and aggrieved traders have reportedly set a section of the Wuse Market, Abuja on fire after an officer allegedly shot a man who had been charged and convicted.

The mob took laws into their hands Tuesday when they learnt that the officer attached to the Mobile Court sitting within the Abuja market shot the man after he tried to escape.

A reliable source in Abuja Market Management Limited (AMML) confirmed the alleged shooting stating, however, that the market had been cordoned off by policemen to restore order in the market while officers of the FCT Fire Service were making attempts to quench the fire and prevent its spread.

The Public Relations Officer in the AMML, Innocent Amaechina, confirmed that the management’s office and several shops and vehicles in the market were lost in the fire.

Meanwhile, the Director of the FCT Fire Service, Amiola Adebayo, did not respond to phone calls, as of the time of filing this report.

Also, the Police Public Relations Officer of the FCT Police Command, SP Josephine Adeh, said she was gathering facts on the matter and would revert as soon as she had more details.
