A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to narrate a 2015 incident where Police labeled him an armed robber after helping a robbery victim who was shot in the head by armed robbers.
In his narration, he wrote on how his neighbour was attacked and shot by the robbers within their estate, but no one came out to help over fear of implication by the police.
He summoned courage and helped the man to the hospital, and just like other people had feared, the Police arrived at the hospital and tried to pin the robbery incident on him
Read his narration below:
In 2015 my estate got robbed and my neighbor who was a Director in Nafdac as at then was shot in the head and needed medical attention urgently. It was 12am in the night and I saw his wife run out to the road shouting for help.
Nobody came out to Assist because everyone was scared to do so. I came out of my house and went to her to find out what was wrong. She then told me her husband was shot and he is giving up if we don’t take him to the hospital.
I immediately went to my house to get my car and put him inside the car with his wife holding him and screaming at the back of the car.
I kept praying while I drove out of the Estate in top speed like a mad person hearding to the hospital.
On our way I met a police checkpoint and they asked what was happening and I explained to them that he was shot and I was going to the hospital.
The officer immediately said I was a robber and that he was going to shoot me while positioning his gun towards me and was more convinced because the car was a nice one and I had stolen it from the Man.
