Big Brother Naija 2018 contestant Angel has shared a scary, but unfortunately, familiar story of his brother getting shot by a police officer.
The incident had occurred in Ondo State, he wrote, while his brother travelled in a Toyota Sienna from Port Harcourt.
The driver of the vehicle had attempted evading one of the several illegal checkpoints on the road when the officer fired two shots.
While both shots found their way into the car, one was stopped by the luggage of passengers, while the other hit his brother’s belt before hitting his hip. He wrote:
