He said: “The attention of the command has been drawn to the shooting of a motorcyclist (name yet unknown) by a police officer in Orlu metropolis, which resulted to the death of the cyclist and the matchetting of one Sergeant Awusu Henry, which has resulted to riots and civil unrest around the metropolis.

“The Commissioner of Police, Imo State, CP Isaac Akinmoyede, has ordered a full-scale investigation into the matter, with a view to unravelling the circumstances surrounding the unfortunate incident. However, the officer responsible for the shooting has been arrested and taken into custody.
