Following the tragedy that struck on Sunday evening, when a drunk policeman reportedly serving at the Lagos state police command headquarters in Ikeja, shot and killed two persons at a birthday party in the Iyana-‘paja area of Lagos, the Lagos state Police Public Relations Officer, SP. Benjamin Hundeyin, has confirmed the incident, saying the police officer has been identified.
Lagos Birthday Victim
According to spokesman Hundeyin, the state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, had ordered an investigation into the incident that killed two persons who were later identified as businessmen.
Another Lagos Birthday Victim
Hundeyin explained that,
“One policeman was involved in the incident. The policeman has been identified but he is not yet in our custody. We are bringing him into custody soon as the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, has directed an investigation into the circumstances leading to that unfortunate incident.”
The police officer, who is now a culprit, was invited by the celebrant to guard the club, in particular, the birthday celebrant while the party lasted; but unfortunately, his excessive alcoholic intake got a greater part of his sense of reasonings and he excitedly shot into the air, killing two of the party attendees in the process.
The Lagos state police command has however assured full “investigation into the circumstances leading to that unfortunate incident.”
