Lagos Police Arrest Protester Who Allegedly Killed Two in Fatal Accident


Lagos State Police Command has arrested one of the #EndSARS protesters, Nike Lawal, ‘f’, of 30, Anjorin Street, Aminkanle in Lagos State, for driving recklessly and killing two innocent Nigerians at Ikola Road in Alagbado area of Lagos on October 14.

The command, in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, identified Lawal as the driver of Toyota 4Runner SUV with registration number: GGE 346 BK, that ran into a tricycle and killed the duo of Ojo Azeez, m, 27-year-old and Yusuf Sodia, m, 26-year-old, both of Command Road, Alagbado in Lagos State.

The statement said: “The suspect, who intentionally removed the number plates on her SUV, as at the time of the incident, joined the protest at AIT Junction, Alagbado, and started driving recklessly, like many other protesters, before the fatal accident.”

Meanwhile, Lagos State Commisioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has commiserated with the families of the deceased and assured them of the command’s commitment to having justice in the case; and that the command would not relent on its efforts in maintaining peace, law and order within the state.

In a related development, the commissioner has arrested and commenced orderly room trial of the four policemen who were caught for assaulting a young lady (protester) in a viral video at Surulere on Monday.

The policemen are: Bagou Michael, Ekpoundom Etop, Nnamdi Majura, and Akinyemi Benson.

The policemen, who are attached to the Divisional Police Headquarters in Surulere, are cooling their feet in the cell while the orderly room trial continues.

Odumosu has also ordered for the arrest of the policeman who slapped an aged mother in another viral video at Iyun Street in Surulere, same day.

The commissioner has, however, reiterated his zero tolerance for incivility, brutality and inappropriate conducts amongst police personnel as his corrective mechanisms are sacrosanct.
