BREAKING: Mobs Kills policeman over death of pregnant woman shot in her shop in Lagos
The Officers involved in the ugly incident were Anti-Kidnapping operatives and not men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, police clarifies.
Following death of a female tailor reportedly killed by men of the Anti Kidnapping Operatives earlier today, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, has said a policeman has been killed and two others injured.
We earlier reported that Some operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad reportedly shot a shop owner, identified as Biliki, in the Ijegun area of Lagos.
The operatives reportedly opened fire on the suspect and one of the bullets hit Biliki, who was in her shop.
According to source at the residence: “The woman was rushed to hospital where she died. We have taken one of the men. He has been beaten and we want you to come down to see things for yourself,”
Correspondent to Punch said that the mobbed policeman was taken to the palace of the traditional ruler in Ijegun, where a crowd of angry youths have requested to lynch him.
The Officers involved in the ugly incident were Anti-Kidnapping operatives and not men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Elkana, clarifies.
Elkana added that there was still tension in the area as a police team had been deployed in the area to restore sanity.
“They were Anti-Kidnap, not SARS operatives. We don’t have the details of what happened for now. But the mob has killed one policeman and injured two. The area is still tense. But we are handling it.”
Biliki, a tailor, was reported to be pregnant when she was killed.
