It was a narrow escape for a lady who was shot in the head by a police escort while he was trying to rescue her from some dogs attacking her.
Video of the unfortunate incident which happened yesterday, around Etete GRA in Benin, Edo State, is currently circulating the Internet.
In the video, the lady is seen crying for help and begging another road user to take her to the hospital, a request to which the good Samaritan obliged.
“I was taking myself out when I saw a woman being attacked by dogs and a Hilux stopped while a policeman came down," the good Samaritan who rushed the lady to the hospital, said while narrating what happened.
"I thought he was going to kick the dogs out but he cocked his gun and fired at the dogs but it missed and hit the woman. The policeman fled immediately and I had to stop to pick her up.
"So we ended here at the hospital. Thank God for life. She was taken to UBTH. It was so painful we couldn’t get the plate number of the Hilux”
