Commercial bus drivers plying the Choba-Mile 3 route in Rivers state on Tuesday, went on rampage in protest over alleged killing of one of their members by a personnel of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps.

The Civil defence officer is attached to the Rivers State Taskforce on illegal trading and motor parks.

The incident took place after members of the taskforce stopped the bus driver along the Ada-George area of the state which led to an altercation.

The victim popularly known as Biggie, was said to have been shot by the civil defence officer during the arguments and as he tried to resist being dragged down from his vehicle.

The development subsequently angered other commercial bus drivers who discharged their passengers and blocked the road in protest against the death of their colleague.

According to some of the commercial drivers, the police arrived at the scene and started shooting into the air in order to disperse protesting drivers and open up the road.

A driver who narrated what transpired said “I was driving behind him when it happened. The taskforce members blocked him at Omega, that he didn’t pack well but the driver argued with them and drove off but they followed him and blocked him at NTA here and while the argument continued the civil defence man just shot him and when they noticed he had died they fled the scene.”

In the meantime, the remains of the victim have been deposited at the mortuary.
