Police officer allegedly kills man getting married next week in Benin... he pushed him in front of an oncoming trailer (graphic photos)

There's a very disturbing news coming from Benin City, Edo State. A driver was killed this morning by a policeman simply because he refused to give him enough bribe.

According to several online reports, a man was killed this morning at upper Igun Road, because he refused to bribe a police officer at a checkpoint. The man whose offense wasn't revealed, was stopped by the unnamed officer. He pleaded with the officer to take N1700 and let him go but the officer refused and insisted on more.

The policeman then pushed the man who was with his fiancee at the time, in front of an oncoming trailer, killing the man on the spot. The couple were reportedly getting married next week.

Angry youths took to the streets to burn down patrol vehicles. The roads have been blocked and there's violence everywhere.

 A Facebook user shared the story online. He wrote:
