Cops Kill Driver, Conductor Over N500 Bribe

Police check point
Policemen attached to the Taraba State Police Command have been accused of killing a driver and his conductor on the Jalingo-Wukari Road.
The incident reportedly happened around 6pm on Sunday when the policemen allegedly mounted a checkpoint in the area.
The killing of the trailer driver and his assistant reportedly followed their refusal to part with a N500 bribe demanded by the policemen at the checkpoint.
According to an internet news portal, eagleonline, the victims were shot dead very close to Wukari, which led to a protest by other trailer drivers.
