A mobile policeman was on Tuesday evening killed when a tipper driver allegedly lost control of his lorry as a result of brake failure and crashed into a police checkpoint at New Tarzan Junction, along Enugu/Onitsha Expressway in Anambra State

Divisional Police Officer at Ogidi, Hassan Musa, confirmed to newsmen yesterday that a policeman lost his life due to the accident, while two others were hospitalized, adding that the driver has been arrested.

According to reports, the driver lost control as he descended the hill towards the police checkpoint, and crashed into another lorry carrying a container  that fell on the policemen.

Some eye-witnesses at the scene of the incident blamed the tipper driver for reckless driving, while others blamed the policemen for always creating artificial traffic jam along the road in a bid to extort money from commercial motorists.

They said the roadblock was created after the recent protests by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB and the police have since turned that checkpoint into an extortion point.
