Doctors Leave Bullet in Banker’s Body, Extract Four
An employee of Access Bank, Femi Badejo, who was allegedly shot alongside a security guard, Joshua Musa, by policemen on Saturday at Ikota, Lagos, still has a bullet lodged in his wrist.
According to PUNCH, the bullet could not be removed at the moment.
“I’m still in pain from the bullet wounds. I was shot five times. Four of the bullets have been removed but the fifth one is still lodged in my wrist and because of fear of complications, doctors can’t touch it for now,” he said.
However, Badejo has been moved from St. Nicholas Hospital, Lagos Island, to an undisclosed location.
Meanwhile, Covenant University Alumni Association has written a petition to the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Abubakar, over the alleged shooting.
Badejo is an alumnus of the university and member of the association.
The Vice-President of the Abuja chapter of the association, Mr. Reginald Bassey, berated the police for lack of professionalism and failing to issue a public apology.
Bassey said the matter was more pathetic because Badejo is a promising young man, a husband and a father-to-be, who had been left incapacitated for days.
