There were heavy gunshots on Wednesday in Aba, Abia State after a policeman attached to Crunches, a fast food restaurant opened fire on members of Abia State Taskforce Board of Internal Revenue.
It was gathered that a member of the taskforce identified as Ifeanyi Kalu was killed instantly while another person was seriously injured making others to scamper for safety.
Speaking with our correspondent, an eyewitness said trouble started when a driver of the fast food restaurant (Crunches) called policemen via his phone that their bus has been driven away by the taskforce.
“When the Policemen came with AK-47, they started shooting sporadically and killed one of the members of the taskforce.”
“And another person was seriously injured. Both of them have been taken to the hospital. Many people are running for safety and the Crunches office has been shut down”.
“One of the Policemen said he is happy that he killed someone. There is pandemonium here now.”
Efforts to speak with the Commissioner of Police in Abia State to comment on the issue proved abortive as at the time of filing this report as messages sent to his known phone number were not replied.
