Angry Youths on Wednesday morning besieged the police station in Ajah to protest the killing of a young man by an Inspector.

The victim identified as Gafaru Buraimoh, a resident of Happy Land Estate in Ajah, was killed by a stray bullet from the trigger-happy Inspector.

It was gathered that Buraimoh was patronising a Point of Sale (POS) vendor when the bullet from the Inspector, who was among cops pursuing black market fuel sellers, hit him.

Although the incident was said to have occurred around 11:30pm on Tuesday, youths who heard about it gathered at the Elemoro Area Command in protest from 8am on Wednesday..

It was gathered that the protesting youths blocked the expressways and made it impossible for vehicles to pass, thereby preventing those going to work from getting to their destination.

As the crowd grew, the police were alleged to have released teargas to scare them but it made the situation riotous.
