The Benue State Police Command has arrested an officer identified as Sgt. James Aondona, for allegedly killing a trailer driver in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of the state.



It was gathered that the sergeant shot the driver dead on Sunday, June 26, after he refused to pay money allegedly demanded by police officers at a roadblock along Katsina-Ala-Zaki-Biam road.


According to activist, Ukan Kurugh, the trailer driver was stopped by the operatives who mounted a road block and was asked to remit N3000 but he gave them N1500 stating that he didn’t have a full truck and can’t pay more than that.


An argument ensued over the driver’s refusal to pay the illegal levy and the policeman allegedly shot and killed him.
