A routine patrol in the Igbo-Elerin area of Ojo, Lagos State, turned tragic when a Police Inspector was killed during an altercation with suspected naval officers.

 

The Inspector and four colleagues were reportedly conducting a routine patrol when they stopped a commercial motorcycle for a traffic offence.

The motorcyclist, dressed in civilian clothing, and his passenger claimed to be naval personnel and resisted arrest. An eyewitness Shola Shodiya told Daily Trust that the confrontation escalated into a heated argument and then a physical fight.

 

Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident.

He said that at about 4:30 pm on Saturday, the policemen attempted to impound the motorcycle for riding against traffic near Beno filling station. The two men in mufti resisted and confronted the officers.

 

The situation deteriorated when additional uniformed naval personnel arrived and joined the attack. During the clash, the Inspector collapsed and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

“Other naval personnel in uniform arrived at the scene and supported their colleague in the attack. While one Inspector slumped and was unconscious, the naval officers, absconded from the scene.

“The inspector was rescued and was rushed to a hospital in the area, where he was confirmed dead. The body has been deposited at the Idi-Araba Mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy. Investigation is ongoing,” Hundeyin said.
