Police officer flees after mistaking Eboka for Ebola in Delta
Drama ensued around Umunede new Road Junction on the popular Asaba-Benin Expressway, weekend, when a policeman from the northern part of the country, ran for his dear life after mistaking Eboka for Ebola.
Leadership reports that those who saw the officer running also took to their heels not knowing what was chasing the man.
According to the report, the mobile policeman had demanded to check the particulars of a privately owned car and shouted at the owner of the car to bring his particulars.
The car owner was said to have told him Eboka, causing him to take off at a frightening speed and shouting for help.
Soon, other vehicles behind and his colleagues were also said to have taken off, until they were told that the man’s name was Eboka, not Ebola.
Expectedly, after being told that Eboka (which means family is supreme in Ika language) was different from Ebola, the fleeing policeman returned to his duty post.
