Airport Tollgate Shooting! Police Boss Orders Arrest Of Four Policemen
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Edgal Imohimi, on Wednesday ordered the arrest of four policemen.
They were the men accused of firing some shots that hit one Tunde Adeparusi and left him injured at the Lagos airport tollgate.
The incident happened at the tollgate end of the airport on Friday, July 20.
According to the Lagos Police PRO, the Commissioner of Police immediately ordered the Command X-Squad section to fish out the policemen involved on receipt of the report.
This led to the arrest of the policemen: Inspector Christian Offor, Inspector Kingsley Umeji, Sergeant David Eguavoen and Sergeant Paul Ebo.
“If the allegation against them is established, they will be marched before the Command's Provost for their orderly room trials.
“The Command wishes to assure members of the public that in line with its tradition of accountability, the outcome of the trial will be made public as usual,” CSP Chike Oti said.
He added the CP’s resolve that belligerent policemen and their likes who have refused to key into the professional ethos of the Force have no room in this era of “democratic policing”.You like this article? Don’t forget to share it!
