A lady has narrowly escaped death after being shot in the head by a police escort trying to rescue her from some dogs attacking her, yesterday, around Etete GRA, Benin, Edo.
Giving an account of the incident, a Good Samaritan who rushed the lady to the hospital, said: “I was taking myself out when I saw a woman being attacked by dogs and a hilux stopped while a policeman came down.
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.”
