The Enugu state commissioner of police Danmallam Mohammed has reiterated his earlier warning of personnel on stop  and search points as well as other duty post against extortion,intimidation/harassment as well as unprofessional use of fire arms against members of the public contrary to the Force order on the use of Fire Arms.
According to Danmallam,any police officer who engages in all manners of extortion as well as other unprofessional conduct which the Force frowns at,will be dealt with in accordance with the relevant rules and regulations guiding the Force and  therefore reminded officers and men on the need to shun those conduct capable of bringing the image of the Force to disrepute.
 The commissioner of police  re-echoed this warning while reacting to an alleged incident that occurred along Opi/Nsukka/Obollafor road on 7/8/17 in which a police man identified as one sgt Luka Habila allegedly shot at one vehicle with registration Number KED 233 SA  while he was on stop and search with his team members.

According to Danmallam,the bullet allegedly hit the conductor of the said vehicle who was immediately rushed to the hospital for medical attention but was later confirmed dead by the Doctor on duty.As I speak to you now,the policeman  has been arrested and detained for a full scale investigations by the state criminal intelligence and investigations Department to enable the quick commencement of his orderly room trial and prosecution states Danmallam. He added that the Force does not condole such an unprofessional conduct from any member of the Force.

It could be recalled that following the alleged incident  that Opi/NSukka/obolloafor road was temporarily blocked to traffic by angry/irate motorists in sympathy to the victim which caused delay in vehicular movement along the road until the professional intervention of the Area commander Nsukka Zone Acp Steve Yabanet acting on the directive of the state commissioner of police Danmallam Mohammed leading to restoration of normalcy and free flow of traffic.
