Yola - A stray dog on Saturday in Yola, went berserk, biting a policeman on duty.

A Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the incident occurred at the popular Police Round-About area of Jimeta.

“The mad dog was being chased and at a point, was hit with a stick. It attacked a policeman in uniform attached to state anti-robbery squad, who was approaching it (dog) from the front.

"The dog bit the policeman on his right leg. The animal was however killed by the people pursuing it and the policeman, advised to hurriedly go for anti-rabies vaccine,” Joseph said.
