This happened at Agulu before the Unizik campus.
Few months ago, a police officer was served jungle justice after allegedly killing a woman at the Oba International market in Anambra State. The trigger happy officer was reportedly stripped and beaten mercilessly, right beside the corpse of the woman he is alleged to have killed. The officer would have been killed, but for the timely intervention of other police officers who stormed the crime scene to rescue him.
This is coming after the Lagos State Police Command, disclosed that it arrested the policeman who allegedly shot one tanker driver dead along Burma Road, Apapa.
The command said 18 suspected hoodlums who allegedly caused mayhem in the area following the killing were also apprehended. According to the command’s spokesperson, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, the police received a distress call from the Chief Security Officer of a new generation bank located in the area which they responded to.
“The caller said hoodlums were trying to take laws into their hands by setting the bank ablaze following the shooting of a tank driver by a policeman attached to the bank during an altercation.
“Operatives of the command including the Area Commander,Apapa, the Rapid Response Squad, and other security agents quickly rushed to the scene to take charge of the situation.
“If not for the quick intervention of the Police, the hoodlums would have wrecked more havoc as they destroyed private properties and valuables.”
