Nigerian Policemen To Be Charged With Murder For Killing Robbery Gang Members Arrested In Laog

Lagos Police command today arrested 4 officers for extrajudicial killing of two suspected robbers in their custody.

The policemen identified as Inspector Fabiyi Omomayara, Sergeant Olaniyi Solomon, Sergeant Solomon Sunday and Corporal Aliyu Mukaila the command said, would be charged with murder because they breached the code of professional conduct and use of fire arms.

The killer cops were seen in a video that surfaced on the social media shooting the suspects alleged to belong to a notorious armed robbery gang terrorising Iba.

It was gathered that the cops had responded to a distress call around 3pm on August 19, from one Valentine Anugu who was robbed of his mobile phone worth N450,000 by four armed robbers on two motorcycles.

While two of the suspected armed robbers fled, the others were held, disarmed of the two locally pistol, six live and five expended cartridges they had before shooting them inside the commercial bus they (police) used for the operation.

Condemning the action of the policemen, spokesman Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) said they went to the extreme and violated the rules on the treatement of suspects in custody.

Although the gang was said to be notorious in the area, the police team took their celebration of the arrest to the extreme by killing the suspects, Elkana said.

“The team went extreme by killing the suspects who were already in their custody instead of taking them to the Police Station and allowing the normal process of investigation and prosecution to be initiated as stipulated under procedural laws.

“That act of extrajudicial killing falls short of police professional standards and cannot be condoned by the command.

The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, Zubairu Muazu has ordered a thorough investigation into the incident.

“The police officers are currently subjected to internal disciplinary proceedings known as Orderly Room trial and if found culpable, they will be dismissed from the Force and handed over to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Yaba for prosecution in the conventional court.

“The public will be updated on the outcome of the investigation and trial,” said Elkana in a statement released on Wednesday.

    I’m not condoning these cops behavior. It is unethical and they should be punished for not following the law which they are bound to enforce. Having said this, I would not recommend their total dismissal from the agency but reprimanding them because those armed robbers deserve to die anyway. In this case, bribery is not involved, aiding and abetting is out of the issue. I think they deserve second chance.

    The reason why I came to this conclusion is because our Judiciary system is so messed up that even the most notorious criminals who are in the death row are bribing their way out to commit more crime against innocent people. We need to kill in order to halt crime in our society. The reason why we have multiple repeated offenders in our society is because the punishment is not severe enough to checkmate them and this catch and release by our court system contributed to increasing in more crime in our nation.

    Hmm are you sure they didn’t kill them cos the robbers had information on the police men? They probably supplied them arms. Won’t be surprised.
