Nine persons sustained various degrees of injury when a suspected drunken policeman allegedly stabbed them in a club in Akure, Ondo State.
The policeman, Sergeant Taiwo Orisadare, attached to Area Commander’s office, allegedly stabbed nine young men during a brawl.
It was learnt that a fight broke out between Orisadare and the young men at a popular club at Alagbaka area.
Witnesses said the policeman was drunk when he started harassing the victims who had come to relax at the club.
One of the witnesses said trouble began when the policeman, who was obviously drunk, started pestering one of the boys.
“It was so clear that he (Orisadare) was drunk and was becoming a nuisance. He won’t just listen to those trying to tell him to take things easy. It was at that point that things went awry as he started attacking everyone he could lay his hands on.
“In total, he stabbed nine people before he was overpowered,” the witness said.
Meanwhile, some of the victims were recuperating in various hospitals while some were said to be in critical conditions.
The state Police Public Relations Officers (PPRO), Femi Joseph, said both parties were engaged in a brawl.
He said: “They were both fighting. The policeman did not stab anyone to death. Do you even know the condition of the policeman now?” (New Telegraph)
