A trigger-happy police officer is on the run after reportedly shooting two people during a birthday celebration held at a bar in Lagos’s Gowon Estate, Egbeda district.
According to eyewitnesses, the officer was offered food and beverages by the party organisers in exchange for his participation in the celebration. He resumed shooting irregularly after eating and drinking to his delight, apparently killing two of the attendees who were showering money at the celebrant.
A video uploaded online depicted the decomposing remains of the deceased and those who received bullet wounds.
SP Benjamin, the state police command’s spokesman, confirmed the event.
“I can confirm that a shooting occurred at the pub on Sunday night, killing two people. We are conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting. I can tell you that the perpetrators will not go unpunished. They will face the consequences. The commissioner of police in Lagos State, CP Abiodun Alabi, has already issued marching orders to the DPO to apprehend the perpetrators.”
Additionally, it was learned that the celebrant, identified as Ifeanyi alias Asiwaju of Computer Village, invited the police officer to offer protection.
