A source who spoke to the newspaper claimed that the gate suddenly ‘bounced back’ while it was being opened by the sergeant and he was knocked down by the driver.
The policeman was thereafter rushed to a hospital where he died.
Meanwhile, policemen are not happy with the development, with many of them expressing outrage at the death.
One of them said:
“Why will an armed policeman be the one opening the gate? Why will politicians turn the police to their slaves? When an officer refused to be used as a gateman in the house, they called the DPO that he should change him and he was redeployed.
“A policeman bearing arms will be asked to open the gate; drivers, civilians and Daniel himself will be telling officers to open the gate. If there is a gatekeeper in that house, this will not happen. This was a man who left his home for work on Saturday, but he died in a mysterious circumstance.
“It is unfortunate that our bosses are not speaking the truth because of what they want to eat. Imagine, officers posted to Gbenga Daniel’s residence are paid N2,500 weekly. Now, that guy has died. What will he give to his family that will replicate the life of that officer? We are tired of this job."
Meanwhile, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, has confirmed the incident.
Oyeyemi described it as an accident that could “happen to anybody.”
