Oct 9, 2013 – Armed Robbers Killed 3 Nigerian Policemen In Ijora Olopa, Lagos

Some gunmen suspected to be armed robbers on Tuesday killed three policemen in Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Umar Manko, who confirmed the development said that the policemen were shot from behind while in a moving patrol vehicle.

Manko said that the suspects, three of whom were dressed in caftan, took advantage of a downpour to hit the policemen who were on legitimate duty around the Ijora-Olopa area of Lagos.

The commissioner said that five policemen were in the vehicle when the suspects, who were on motorcycle, attacked them.

Manko said that three of the policemen died on the spot while the fourth sustained injuries with the driver, escaping unhurt.

The commissioner, however, said that he could not immediately give details on how the incident happened because he was yet to be briefed.

He said the policemen were attached to the Area ‘C’ Police Command in Surulere, adding that investigation had commenced with a view to fishing out the suspects. [PM News]

  4. this is one of the reasons i said i would not serve this country Nigeria as an officer where their agender for you is for you to live with bribe and course from million masses and die and go to hell; so i chose to be army of LORD JESUS where i will die with greatest gain of all, for nothing under the sun is profitable except your work for LORD JESUS which you work with hope to get your reward in heaven.

  5. Our Governor needs to do more, they are robbing and killing innocent people at Oshodi and Mile2 bridge btw 7 & 9:30pm almost everyday. I was personally robbed in those 2 places, they shattered my driver side window and collected all I had in the car. Fashola is doing a wonderful job but let him pay more attention to those two places. People that lives in Amuwo and Festac are suffering.
