Tragedy struck in Ajaokuta town on Sunday after a drunken police officer shot dead a father of one.

The victim, Mohammed Ismail, met untimely death at a rally of one of the chairmanship aspirants in the Ajaokuta Local Government Area, Abdulrahaman Dansabe, at the Local Government Secondary School, Ajaokuta.

It was reliably gathered that the incident occurred around 2pm while the aspirant, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, was unfolding his plans for the area.

An eyewitness told PUNCH correspondent that the yet-to-be identified policeman, suddenly opened fire and a bullet hit Ismail.

The development caused confusion in the area as those at the venue of the rally ran for safety.
