An unidentified man was this morning shot dead by the police in Obudu for allegedly attempting to raid the police station along with his cohorts who were lucky to escape.

The alleged invaders were said to have arrived the station about midnight but met stiff resistance from policemen who succeeded in shooting one dead.

When contacted, the Divisional Police Officer, DPO of Obudu Division, CSP Chigozie Oliver Nnadozie, confirmed the attack, revealing to CrossRiverWatch that, “They were many, they attacked my station at about 12 midnight one was unlucky and was short dead while fleeing and another fled with bullet wounds, four machines (motorcycles) were involved.

“It took us about 20 minutes to overcome them, I think they parked their machines (motorcycles) at the prisons area, the prisons officer later informed us that they saw them running from their area. The barracks was combed and they ran in different directions as the barrack is very bushy”.

There is however ominous caution and mixed feelings among Obudu residents some of who told CrossRiverWatch that the identity of the dead man should be unraveled to be sure it is not another case of the police killing an innocent man and calling him a criminal.

Mr. Thomas Undie, a resident of Obudu who spoke with our reporter said “I am still surprised at the story I must say. What exactly did the so called criminals go to steal from the station, was it guns, money or goods and property? How can one armed robber attack a police station?

“I still don’t believe the police. Let them unravel the identity of the dead and let us examine more facts before it becomes another case of killer cops killing innocent citizens and labeling them criminals.”

The body of the dead is said to have been deposited at the morgue.
