One person has been burnt to death as officials of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, allegedly shot a commercial bus which somersaulted into a ditch at Miliki Hill, Enugu. The incident occurred around ten o’clock in the morning.
According to eye witnesses, Some Civil Defence personnel pursued the driver of the bus as he tried to evade arrest after he parked wrongly at Odegba, New Market Enugu. The eyewitnesses said about three persons survived in the incident.
A Police personnel, who pleaded anonymity said they apprehended one of the Civil Defence operatives as efforts by Radio Nigeria to confirm the arrest from the Police Public Relations Officer, Enugu State command was unsuccessful as he was not in office when visited.
However in an interview, the Public Relations Officer, NSCDC, Enugu State Command, Mr Danny Manuel Iwuchkwu said details of the incident were still sketchy.
The NSCDC Spokesperson also confirmed that an officer of the command was still in detention after shooting a woman in the leg last week.
