It is quite unfortunate that some law enforcement officers in Nigeria can become an actual “threat” to law-abiding citizens that suspect malicious activities amongst the force. Yes, this is the summary of a currently trending report which reveals that some Lagos policemen recently shot a bank manager for protesting his damaged car. The bank manager got shot when he alleged that the policemen were conniving with some area boys and the driver that damaged his car. Can you just imagine that?

At this point, you might already be getting confused about the interwoven details of this report. Well, here are the key highlights of the story so far:
- Bamidele Ajala is said to be a 39-years-old Wema Bank branch manager in Lagos. He claimed to be driving his Honda Accord sedan when suddenly a bus driver crashed into his vehicle.
- Ajala says that the bus driver claimed to have lost control because some hoodlums (Area boys) dragged the vehicle steering with him to halt his bus. But what was most interesting is that the bus driver alleged that the policemen attached to that section of the road were conniving with the hoodlums that caused him to hit Ajala’s sedan.
- After Ajala’s vehicle had been badly damaged at the rear door area, he reportedly tried taking the bus driver to the police station. Unfortunately, the policemen allegedly began to shoot in the air and then eventually shot Ajala in his hand just to block him from revealing their illegal dealings with the hoodlums.
