August 22, 2013 – Police Officer Who Killed FUTA Student Arrested In Ikorodu Lagos (Aruna Ayodele)

The Lagos State Police Command in western Nigeria said on Wednesday that it has arrested the policeman, who allegedly pulled the trigger and killed a motorcyclist in Ikorodu on Tuesday.

The command’s spokesman, DSP Ngozi Braide, confirmed this in an interview.

The killing triggered public protest, further necessitating the deployment of heavily armed policemen in the town.

The protest also paralysed socio-economic activities in the ancient town

The protesters, who are mainly youths, are demanding the release of the motorcyclist’s corpse to them by the Ikorodu General Hospital to avert what they called possible foul play.

Braide said:“Four of them are already in police custody, including the officer who shot the motorcyclist.

“The policeman who was attacked by the motorcyclists is being treated at a hospital.’’

She said the situation was under control, adding that investigation into the incident was ongoing.

“We want to know who fired the shot and why he fired; justice must be done, “ Braide added.
