“The policeman who shot a tanker driver dead in Apapa will be punished”: Lagos CP

Michael Shotade

The Lagos State​ Commissioner of Police, Fatai
Owoseni has assured that the​ policeman who shot a tanker driver dead in Apapa will be punished. The incident which led to mob setting Sterling and Diamond Banks ablaze shook the foundation of Apapa.

Speaking on the incident, The Commissioner said:

“It was an unfortunate incident. Like we said before, the policeman in the question has been taken into custody and currently being guarded in the hospital because he was stabbed.

“As of this morning, he was taken to the theatre for surgery. That notwithstanding, the provisions of extant regulations of the police would be applied in dealing with the situation. ”

The action of the errant Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO), identified as a sergeant attached to the Police Mobile Force(PMF) 23, had disrupted the peace in Apapa.

Owoseni further said:
“Without justifying their actions, I think the
reaction from the drivers was as a result of
bottled up anger. Some of them left their
families to load at the port with the expectation to
return within two days, only to spend one week there.

“But that does not mean they should take laws into their hands. What they did was brazen lawlessness. We appeal to the public that when things happen like that, the rule of law should be allowed to take its course.” he said

In his Reaction to the damage done to the banks he said:

“The banks are in the position to say what the
lost are. But from my assessment when I visited the
place, no staff of the banks was hurt. They quickly evacuated.

“I can tell you that three vehicles were
vandalized, and the banks were partially burnt​”.
He also assured that justice is taking its course
