Monsurat Ojuade: Lagos Police conceal killer cop’s identity
Police officers attached to the Panti Division on Friday night allegedly shot and killed an 18-year-old lady, Monsurat Ojuade, during a raid in Surulere, Lagos.
WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that Monsurat was reportedly hit by a bullet when detectives from the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, went to arrest a robbery suspect in Ijesha.
Monsurat died within a short period throwing the entire neighbourhood into mourning.
A statement released Sunday night by Adekunle Ajisebutu, Police Public Relations Officer confirmed that the operative who pulled the trigger has been identified and is being detained.
The spokesman, however, failed to mention the name and rank of the killer cop.
The PRO only said Odumosu directed that the “officer” be tried and charged to court after dismissal.
“This, it is believed, will serve as a deterrent to others who do not act professionally in the course of their duties”, Ajisebutu added.
Monsurat’s family, friends and social media users are demanding justice. A video of the teenager’s lifeless body is circulating on the internet.
Meanwhile, the Lagos Police Command announced that CSP Adegoke Akinlade, who lost his service pistol after office sex, was redeployed.
Residents say Akinlade, the Denton Divisional Police Officer, should have been suspended pending the conclusion of investigations.
The Force headquarters is looking into the matter and is expected to ensure Akinlade faces the music.
