An inspector of police identified as Stanley Azu serving under Azumini Police Division in Ukwa East LGA of Abia State has reportedly killed a petrol station staff in Obingwa LGA.

The incident happened along popular New Umuahia road.

Inspector Stanley was said to have tried stopping a vehicle that violated the lockdown order but the driver defied the instruction.

Sources in the area said that the police inspector chased the driver and reportedly fired at him.

The bullet strayed and hit Chibuisi, who was in his centre.

Chibuisi was said to have been pronounced dead at Abia State Teaching Hospital where he was rushed to for urgent medical attention.

Chibuisi until his death was a staff of Greenmac Energy Ltd, a Petroleum Station Company owned by his in-law.

Abia Police Commissioner, Ene Okon, confirmed the arrest of the officer and said that the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) has taken over the matter.

Okon said that the police as an institution does not take such action of the inspector lightly.

“That police inspector was arrested immediately and detained.

“As I’m talking to you, SCID has taken over the matter and are investigating the police inspector for murder.

“We have our rules of engagement, we have our standard of operation and procedure and we have our own Order 237 as reviewed.

“That order has to do with when a police officer has to use his firearm and it’ll be justified,” Okon said.

COVID-19: Nigerian airports set for reopening, passengers issued warning Air Peace Boeing 777

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said it has put in place arrangements on passenger facilitation, ahead of resumption of flights.

The General Manager Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu, stated this while speaking at an aviation webinar organised by Women in Aviation (WIA) Nigeria with the theme: “Aviation: The New Norm in the post COVID-19.”

Yakubu warned passengers to expect delays and long hours of checks and re-checks from when they arrive the airport until they depart.

She said noted escorts of VIPs would no longer be allowed to follow their principals into the terminal.

“We are going to expect flight delays, flights will experience delays from checks and re-checks. If you are travelling, I will expect a potential traveler to leave home hours before his flight. Why do I say this?

“Because there is going to be a lot of checks in the front of the terminal we have been told that some may activities and procedures will take place in front of the terminal. So air travelers are expected to leave home very early so that they can get to the airport on time,” Yakubu said.
