A 19-year-old boy identified as Ledisi Kote risks losing one of his legs after allegedly being shot by a policeman for impregnating a 17-year-old girl in K. Dere community in Gokana local government area of Rivers State. 

Facebook user Tuka Loanyie said the incident occurred on Friday August 21, and further revealed that the "trigger-happy" policeman is attached to Kpor police division. 

It was also learnt that the policemen who allegedly shot the boy in the leg is yet to take full responsibility. Loanyie disclosed that the boy will need to undergo three different surgeries or risk surfing an amputation. 

He wrote; 

His 19years old boy by name Ledisi Kote was shot by a trigger happy police man from Kpor Division in Gokana LGA of Rivers state, just because he impregnated a girl.

According to the sick father, he was in his compound in K. Dere community in Gokana local government area of Rivers state on Friday morning around 7AM, when a Sienna drove into his compound with about four armed police men. They went straight to his son's room door and was banging and cocking guns. He approached them to inquire from them what his son did wrong that they were trying to find him, but non of them answered him. it had been one among them who angrily told him that his son impregnated a girl. I mean, that is the only crime!!

The next thing he heard from the backyard of his home is a gunshot. one among the officers shot his son on the leg just because he impregnated a woman . They went away with him while he was bleeding profusely and hid him in a private hospital.

I and Enefaa Georgewill took the father to the police headquarters on Moscow road in Port Harcourt and officially laid down a complaints about what their officers did to an innocent boy. His only offense was because he impregnated a woman . We made arrangements and transferred him from the village to a far better government owned hospital in Port Harcourt.

There are good cops but the bad eggs amongst them are those giving the force a nasty image.

I am making this post because up so far , the officer that did this is often yet to take full responsibility of the medications. The doctor said he will need to undergo three different surgeries or else his leg could be amputated. we would like justice for this boy. It might be me otherwise you tomorrow.
