Lagos State Police Command has arrested the fleeing Sergeant Eze Aiwansone, attached to the Special Prorection Unit (SPU) Base 16 in Ikeja for the shooting of his girlfriend, Joy Eze.
The incident occurred on October 8 in Opebi, Ikeja.
The command said the suspect, who had been on the run, was arrested by his elder brother who is an inspector of police in Lagos State and handed him over to the command.
The State CID Panti has taken over the case on the instruction of Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, for further investigation, said a statement by the command’s Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
Odumosu has, however, warned police personnel in Lagos State to desist from any act that could tarnish the image of the police, charging them to be committed to the principles of community oolicing for better service delivery and public safety in the state.
