A politician who reportedly conspired with a policeman to carry out a dastardly act at APC’s rally yesterday has been arrested.

Ikechukwu, the Ekiti police spokesman has been revealed that the politician who masterminded the shooting in Ekiti during the All Progressives Congress rally has been arrested.

The policeman, he said, was posted to a bank in Lagos but travelled to Ekiti for an “illegal duty”.

“At about 17:00 hours, a policeman who accidentally shot Opeyemi Bamidele and one other has been arrested. The policeman is in our custody now,” he said.

“He is attached to 20 police mobile force (PMF) in Ikeja Lagos. He left where he was posted on bank guard duty somewhere in Ikeja for illegal duty in Ekiti state.

“A politician conspired with the policeman and removed him from where he was posted in Lagos and both came to Ekiti for unofficial reasons. The politician has also been arrested.

“The victims of the accidental discharge are currently responding to treatment at the hospital, and also the policeman who was mobbed is also responding to treatment in our protective custody.”

The police PRO said he can’t disclose the identity of the politician as investigations are still ongoing.
