Nollywood actor and Director, Azeez Ijaduade, who was shot “accidentally” by a police man in Iperu in Remo area of Ogun State on Sunday, has received the

State Police Commissioner, Abiodun Alamutu, on his hospital bed where doctors are battling to save his life.

In a swift reaction to the shooting, Police authorities said the officer whose “shot accidentally” will face disciplinary action.

Alamutu had arrived at the in-patient wards of the Babcock University Teaching Hospital, Ilisan near Iperu, Governor Dapo Abiodun’s town at 11.05 a.m. on Sunday,’ December 24.

Persecondnews had reported that the Nollywood actor was shot by a police man and was taken to the hospital for medical attention.

Ijaduade was admitted at the male surgical ward of the hospital.

On the condition of the actor, the police commissioner said he was in a stable condition, describing the shooting as unfortunate and uncalled for.

Ijaduade will be discharged after being certified okay by the doctors, he said.

“It was actually an unfortunate incident, but from all indications, I have seen the victim; it was not a direct hit. Actually, some people were trying to mob the principal the policeman was attached to, and to scare them off, he had to fire some shots.

“It was unfortunate that the victim was within that axis. It was the shell that hit the victim. From all indications, he is getting better. The concerned policeman is already undergoing disciplinary procedures. What is important is for us to ensure that no life is lost.

“From what I have seen so far, he’s recuperating, but he needs to be observed for some time to ensure that no vital part of his body is affected. From the way I see him, I believe no one is affected. But that can only be certified by the medical experts,” the commissioner said.

On the conduct of the officer, Alamutu said the officer did not exhibit professionalism in handling the rowdy situation, assuring that “he would be made to face disciplinary actions.”
