    An allegedly drunk policeman, identified as Taiwo Orisadare stabbed at least nine persons causing them varying degrees of injury at a nightclub in Akure, Ondo State.

    It was not clear if Orisadare was on duty at the time the incident happened, but an eyewitness said the policeman, who was reportedly drunk, started harassing the victims.

    The eyewitness said, “It was clear that the Policeman was drunk and he was already becoming uncontrollable at the club.

    “He won’t just listen to those trying to tell him to take things easy. It got to a point that things went awry as he started attacking everyone he could lay his hands on. In total, he stabbed nine people before he was overpowered.”

    Another source said some of the victims were currently receiving treatment at various hospitals in Akure, while some were in critical conditions. However, there was no loss of life in the incident.

    Femi Joseph, the spokesman for the police in the state, confirmed the incident and stated that both parties were engaged in a brawl.

    He said Orisadare was also injured in the fight and had been taken to hospital.

    men, but we have started an investigation into the matter.

    “All those involved in the brawl are already in hospital receiving treatment. But if at the end of the day we find our man culpable, we will deal with him, because we don’t tolerate indiscipline in this command.”
