A Nigerian Police officer has been arrested for indiscriminately shooting.
The policeman, whose identity is not yet known, has been detained by Nigerian Air Force personnel at Port Harcourt Military Airport after firing indiscriminately into the air.
A source at the scene of the incident told SaharaReporters that the police officer became angry and committed the act after a bartender in the officers’ mess warned him not to carry a bottle of beer that he was holding on the platform where the planes were parked.
The policeman was asked to find a private area to drink, but instead of complying with the directive, he decided to cock his gun and shoot into the air to show his anger at the bartender.
“The police escorts of several dignitaries were yesterday at the Port Harcourt Military Airport for a meeting held at the Government House.
“Near the platform where their planes were parked there is an air force officers’ mess where a policeman approached the waiter to ask for a bottle of beer.
“As he had the bottle and was approaching the apron to go drink it, the bartender told him to drink it under a mango tree and that no bottles were allowed in the apron.
“The policeman was furious and asked who was giving the order. Almost immediately, he cocked his rifle and fired into the air and the guy took cover before other police officers around him disarmed him and the air force personnel arrested him, ”revealed the source.
