A dog is on the brink of death after it was allegedly shot by a policeman for refusing to allow them into a home in Akure.
According to eyewitnesses, the police officers “invaded” no. 6, Samson Ogunleye street, Omi Agagu, Olufoam Area in Akure, at about 7am today, June 24. The dogs guarding the compound refused to let them in, so an officer allegedly opened fire on one of the dogs.
The dog is now in critical condition. In photos shared online, the dog is seen bleeding profusely with its organs hanging outside its body.
The police have reacted on Twitter by stating that an investigation has been initiated.
“Your complaint is hereby acknowledged and investigation has been initiated. Your tracking number is #CRU200696 Thank you for contacting NPF-CRU. Cc:@i_am_jay_bee,” the Complaint Response Unit (CRU) of the Police tweeted.
