It was broad day light at Mabiaku Road, GRA, Warri, at the entrance of the Anglican Bishop’s court/junction to Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor’s residence, when an SUV blocked a saloon car, opened fire on its occupants. The car swung across the culvert into the fence of the bishop’s court, bringing it down. The driver was hit severally and did not survive it. The second occupant was able to scamper through the broken wall into the Anglican Bishop’s court into safety , while the gunmen continued to shot sporadically into the car and the air.
They proceeded to open the boot, pulled out a sack that contained a lot of money, continued shooting into the air and drove off towards the B division of the the Nigerian Police .
All of these took close to twenty minutes at a spot that’s just a stone throw from both the A and B division of the Nigerian Police Force and, a nest of Nigerian Army Who are guarding certain persons in the area, yet, none of these showed up.
Sympathizers tried taking the driver to the nearby central hospital, but he was already dead.
Incidents as these makes the common man wonder if our security agencies are truly interested in our safety .
