Three policemen attached to the Igando Police Division, allegedly killed two drivers at a road block for refusing to give them a bribe in the early hours of Wednesday.

The development came less than a week after the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Muhammed Abubakar, ordered that no policeman should mount any roadblock again.

It was learnt that after killing the drivers who were staff of Multiple Covenant Investment Limited, the policemen labeled them robbers.

It was gathered that the victims were on their way to work on a motorcycle and were flagged down by the policemen who demanded money from them but they refused to part with any money.

It was learnt that they were about to speed off, when one of the policemen was said to have opened fire. The bullet perforated the back of the man on the passenger seat and burst out from his front and entered the back of the man who was riding the motorbike.

The victim on the passenger seat was said to have died instantly, while the rider was still alive.

According to reports, in a bid to cover up their crime, the policemen took the corpse and the other victim, who was seriously injured, to their station where they were labeled armed robbers.
