Fare scandal as police shoots boda boda rider and kills self.
Fare scandal as police shoots a boda boda and turns the gun to self, has been witnessed in outside Malindi, Kilifi county.
According to eye witnesses, the police shot himself on the chin, after committing the incident.
An argument surged, after the police refused to pay the agreed amount of ferrying transport.
One eyewitness stated,”The man was only looking for Ksh50 to feed his family. Instead of getting what he rightfully deserved, he was killed. Does that mean the rights of boda boda riders don’t matter?”
Another one stated,”We want the police officer to be held accountable as a lesson to other officers who believe that they can kill civilians and get away with it.”
However, the police department has stated that he shot himself under unknown circumstances.
The police department stated,”The police officer went missing after the shooting incident following a disagreement over unknown reasons.”
Investigations are underway, as Ganda Ward MCA Abdulrahman Omar, says justice must prevail.
