A Police officer with the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) has allegedly kill the manager of BB Umar Livestock, popularly known as Nababa in Ganaja Village area, an outskirt of Lokoja in Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi State.
The incident has caused gridlock as passengers travelling to the eastern part of the country have to park their vehicles for safety, with tension visibly enveloping the area.
It was gathered that trouble started when some angry mob allegedly seized the motor bike of a SARS officer who allegedly hit a young girl.
Eyewitness account also revealed that when residents of the area were appealing to the officer to convey the girl for treatment, he refused but rather called his other colleagues who are also SARS operatives.
The matter got worsened when men of the SARS arrived the scene and took side in support of their colleagues, an action that sparked the anger of residents of Ganaja, who are natives.
In the ensuing argument, there was a shootout, with a bullet allegedly hitting the manager of BB Umar, who was said to be seated in his shop.
The death of the manager further infuriated the locals in Ganaja, leading to a pandemonium.

The presence of more security personnel calmed frayed nerves. They opened up the road for vehicular movement and took the corpse of the deceased to the state headquarters of the Nigerian Police.

The police public relations officer has confirmed the killing.

Meanwhile, Kogi State Government has vowed that the killer of Nababa will not go unpunished.
Addressing irate youths in front of the police command today, the Special Adviser to the Kogi state governor, Jerry Omodara, lamented the death and assured the protesters that justice will be done.
