Suspected Navy Officer shot Lagos-based Doctor three times
An unnamed member of the Nigerian Navy has allegedly assaulted a Lagos-based Doctor Drowen for parking.
According to the voice record of the Doctor and picture proofs shared by a tweep on twitter today, Dr Drowen was shot three times on his leg.
The victim who narrated his ordeal explained that he was on his way to have a spa he had booked for on last Saturday.
He said he was to meet some people around Conoil (sic) trying to lead to the freedom way.
He added that when he got there he noticed that there were lots of cars parked on all sides so the only option for him was to move further down the road to park his car.
The Lagos-based Doctor said upon getting to a side down the road, trying to park his car, some guys came and started hitting his car.
He recounted that after a little while he came down to ask why they are hitting his car and that was when one of them started beating him. Two other came to join him.
Dr Drowen said he was cut open with a knife before he left the scene for a police station where he got some officers to follow him down to the scene.
However, he said upon getting to the scene, the same guy that started the beating at first came out with a gun and shot him.
He said at first he heard the gunshots, he never knew the bullets will ricocheted into his body until he felt the hit three times.
Furthermore, parent and family of the Doctor have called for Justice over what they called “dastard act” on Dr Drowen.
Moreover, an attempt to reach the base of the Navy officers to confirm this report was proven abortive as until the press time, we have yet to identify the men and their base.
