Man slaps Taxi driver into Coma over Buhari’s death rumour
The story according to an eyewitness;
Bukar was said to have attacked the driver whose name was not given after he openly celebrated an online media report alleging that President Buhari had died. The driver, who had joined other ‘free readers’ at a newspaper stand at Temple Clinic Junction was reported to have not only celebrated Buhari’s death but also made inciting comments about the country’s number one citizen.
He was reported to have said: “The body of the President should be thrown into River-Niger, he is very wicked, for fish and other wild animals to do justice on him.”
The driver’s words angered Bukar, who was also at the newsstand. Leadership quoted a source as saying that “he (Bukar) slapped the driver and following the slap, the man immediately moved into unexpected coma” .
It was timely intervention of the police that prevented the matter from turning bloody.
Leadership reports that the driver was later rushed to a private hospital where he was 'revived'.
Spokesman of Delta state police command, Andrew Aniamaka confirmed that the man is receiving treatment, adding that Bukar had been arrested and detained for interrogation
