Angry Nigerian policeman shot death inspector, injured one over gate closure in Lagos


Angry Nigerian policeman shot death inspector, injured one over gate closure in Lagos









A Nigerian police inspector identified as Adekunle Ilesanmi, has been shot to death by a sergeant, Okema Azuquo, in the Oke-Odo area of Lagos State, THEWATCH NEWS reports.



According to multiple reports the killer policeman Azuquo was quarrelling with some tenants over the time to close the gate of their place of residence on Dosumu Street in the Agbelekale area of Oke-Odo, when Ilesanmi intervened and attempted to subdue him.



Out of annoyance, Azuquo was said to have pounced on the inspector and dealt him several machete blows on his leg and other parts of his body.



A co-tenant, Ayodele Eyitayo, was said to have also sustained an injury on his face during the attack, which occurred last Thursday.



Our correspondent learnt that some good Samaritans, including neighbours, rushed Ilesanmi and Eyitayo to a nearby hospital for treatment.



While Eyitayo was treated and discharged, Ilesanmi was placed on admission due to the severity of the injuries he sustained.



However, despite efforts by doctors to save his life, Ilesanmi died on Sunday.



Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said the sergeant was quarrelling with other tenants over the time to close the gate to the house, adding that the inspector, who was also a tenant in the house, intervened to stop the sergeant and was butchered in the process.









For preventing the sergeant from killing his co-tenants, Elkana said the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, paid tribute to him for his courageous act, while commiserating with Ilesanmi’s family.



He stated that the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, had been assigned to take over the case, adding that Azuquo had been arrested and would be charged after investigation into the incident had been completed.
