The Police Command in Enugu State on Monday said it has commenced investigations into an alleged shooting to death of a policeman by his colleague in Enugu.
The culprit reportedly mistook his arms-bearing colleague for a robber because he was in mufti.
NAN reports that the incident occurred at the Independence Layout axis of the city on Saturday night during a downpour.
The Command’s spokesman, Superintendent of Police Ebere Amaraizu, told NAN in Enugu that, “It is one of the operational hazards of the job. It was a mistake.
“The main Police patrol team in that axis of the city was on a patrol duty and it responded to a distress call and mistook the arm-bearing plain-clothed policeman for an armed robber.
