Narrating the incident, an eyewitness, Saror Sekav, said, “Our police are funnily stupid. Today, I saw the worst cadre.
“A policeman stopped us at a checkpoint in Zaki Biam and ordered us out of the car on the grounds that our driver was fond of not greeting him.
“We and the driver begged that he should let us go but he refused. We thought he was joking until when he turned down his superior’s order to allow us leave.”
The leadership of the Benue State Police Command was yet to issue a press statement as regards the gross misconduct of one of its members as at the time of filing this report.
