There is confusion over the alleged neglect and abandonment of a police officer in Delta State who was amputated in a hospital after gunmen attacked him alongside two other officers in the state.
The officers, from the Isiokolo Police Division, were conducting a routine stop-and-search operation in front of the police facility at about 8 p.m. when the gunmen attacked them.
Meanwhile, there have been allegations that the police authorities abandoned the officer in the privately owned hospital where he was rushed after the attack.
The police spokesperson said an unnamed family of the officer “who did not know what is happening” was behind the allegation, insisting that the officer’s medical bills had been paid by the police.
The officer, Robinson Irobo, and his colleagues were attacked by the gunmen on 24 August in Isiokolo, a community in Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state.
