Gov Sanwo-Olu reveals identities of policemen involved in death of #ENDSARS protester
Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed the identities of four policemen involved in the killing of a 55-year-old #ENDSARS protester in Surulere.
Ikechukwu Iloamauzor was shot dead during the protest.
Sanwo-Olu, in a media briefing on Thursday, gave their names as Bagou Michael, Ekpoudom Etop, Nnamdi Madura and Akinyemi Benson.
According to him, the officers have all been apprehended.
Sanwo-Olu once again warned against any attacks on protesters in the state.
The Governor denied knowledge of the incident at Alausa earlier in the day and insisted the ‘BRT bus’ involvement is false.
Earlier, in a series of tweets on Thursday evening, Sanwo-Olu said: “Also, to mention that Lagos state is taking the issue of police misconduct very seriously, earlier this week, we all recall the incident that happened at the Area C command in Surulere.
“All the four officers have been identified and are going through an orderly trial.
“All the four erring officers whose name I will also mention have also been apprehended and are going through an orderly trial. They are Inspector Bagou Michael, Inspector Ekpoudom Etop, – Sergent Nnamdi Madura, and Sergent Akinyemi Benson.
“We have also set up a panel to look into all cases of police brutality and fatality and have set up a N200m compensation fund. I will make all announcements shortly. Once again, I apologise to any protester that has faced brutality during any of the protests days.”
