A video making the rounds online captures the moment police officers were involved in the shooting of a suspected criminal who escaped.
The suspect was fleeing from a building which is believed to have been raided by security operatives and he climbed to the roof to make an escape.
Policemen who spotted him immediately opened fire on him rapidly but bullets apparently did not touch his body as he kept running.
He continued making a run with his head bent as the shooting could not stop him and he was able to climb unto another rooftop without getting hit.
A video of the shooting was captured by a resident who witness it and social media users were in awe of how lucky the suspect was that he did not get hit.
Some noted that they are beginning to believe the stories in movies where action stars are able to escape while being shot at.
Watch the video below:
In other news, a Nigerian man identified as Ibrahim Kazeem, has narrated how police officers allegedly harrassed and extorted his friend, who works remotely.
The tweep said his friend just moved to a new place in Ilorin, Kwara state, but because he always stays indoors to do some work, it raised suspicion.
Neighbours apparently reported the man to police, who then stormed his house to question him for always being inside.
He explained that he was a remote worker, but they did not believe there was any concept like ‘working from home’.
According to Kazeem who narrated the incident on Twitter, his friend’s phone was seized to prevent him from further contacting his lawyer for help.
He wrote; ‘‘My friend moved to his house in the outskirts of Ilọrin 3 months ago. Police went to his home this morning that he was reported to be staying indoors 2much. He told dem he’s a remote worker but they said there’s nothing remote about working.
They took his phone so he won’t be able to follow up with his lawyer after reaching him. They left him this night after harassing and extorting him. Even in your house, you can sit down and injure your neck(read in yoruba). A new low for the men in Aṣọ opo. Sigh.”
A tweep @khanofkhans11_ commented; Someone reported him smh.
Kazeem @peng_writer replied; ”Walahi. New area o. I guess because he is the only one with light. 😀He run solar to his own home since there’s no electricity in that area yet.”
