VIDEO: Nigerian Police Kill Unarmed Civilian

The police have been accused of shooting an unarmed civilian dead.

An amateur video being circulated on Twitter and Facebook shows two armed police officers dragging an unarmed young man through the street, before firing at him at close range.

The man fell down on the floor and appeared to have died instantly.

A male voice, apparently from those who did the secret recording, could be heard saying in Pidgin English, “Dem finish-am (they have killed him)”.

“Jesus!” another voice, a female, is heard whispering, out of shock, apparently.

From the video, it appears the victim wanted to run away before the officers shot him dead.

The nature of the victim’s crime and his identity, as well as that of the officers, is unknown for now.

About four other young men are seen in the video lying down on the floor, with the officers pointing rifles at them.

It is not clear when the incident happened. But from what people are tweeting about it, the incident may have happened either on Monday or Tuesday.




The police tweeted on Tuesday that the acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, “has ordered full investigation into the incident.”
