A Deputy Commissioner of Police, Usman Umar, in charge of Operations at the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, was reportedly shot dead after a protest by members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, known as  Shi’ites, in Abuja on Monday turned violent.

FELLOW PRESS learnt that two of the protesters were killed, while a member of the National Youth Service Corps reporting for  Channels TV was hit by a stray bullet as many more were injured during alleged exchange of fire between the sect and security forces.

The reporter, Precious Owolabi, was rushed to the National Hospital, Garki, where he later died on Monday evening.

The protest, which started from NITEL Junction at Wuse 2, was aimed at forcing the Federal Government to free their leader, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, who has been in detention since December 2015.

Umar was reportedly shot as he tried to pacify the protesters who went on the rampage.

The protesters also destroyed vehicles.

One of our correspondents,  who was at Force Headquarters, saw officers mourning Umar,  who they described as a very kind man.

A police Inspector said, “The DCP was a very good man. We were at the mosque on  Friday when he saw one Inspector looking haggard. The man told him how he had not been paid for over 14 months because he was unable to complete his IPPIS (Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information).

“On hearing that, DCP Umar hugged him and immediately made calls to the officer in charge of the platform and budget office. Today, the Inspector has been directed to come to the IPPIS office for enrollment on the platform. His death is so shocking.”
