Lagos police arrested an inspector, Okoro Charles, of the Ikotun Police Division, for allegedly killing a Fatai Oladipupo to death in Lagos.
Confirming the incident, Lagos state police (PPRO) public relations officer Bala Elkana, deputy police superintendent, said the command arrested Inspector Okoro Charles after it was reported that he had killed the man.
Elkana, he said, the inspector was arrested in connection with a shooting incident along Obabiyi's road, Igando, Ikotun, which eventually led to the death of Oladipupo's 28-year-old in the Obabiyi area.
He said the inspector had been subjected to internal disciplinary procedures, known as the Ordinary Chamber Trial in the State Rector's Department and, if found guilty, would be handed over to the Yaba State Criminal Investigation Department to be prosecuted in the conventional court.
He added that an investigation is underway to unravel the circumstances of the incident.
Meanwhile, the state police commissioner, Hakeem Odumosun, argues with the family and friends of the deceased and calls for calm.
He guarantees that justice will prevail and members of the public will be updated on the outcome of the investigation.
Odumosun also ordered the transfer of the case involving the murder and murder of Sergeant Onalaja Onajide, linked to the Ilemba Hausa Division, to the State Department of Criminal Investigation (CID) for investigation and condolences to the family of the dead colleague.
He assured them that justice will be served.
