Yesterday, May 31, 2020, an unidentified police officer was arrested after opening fire on his colleagues at Onikan, killing some of them.
According to reports, the officer who is attached to the Federal Inland Revenue Service FIRS went berserk around 5am following a disagreement with other members of his team.
After shooting his colleagues, he hijacked their operational vehicle and drove straight to Akoka in Yaba where he attempted to force his way into a building.
The building had a metallic door and the policeman allegedly opened fire on the property to gain access. No fewer than 30 bullet holes were counted in an apartment, corridor, and ceiling of the premises.
It was also gathered that Men from the Bariga Police Division and the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) were alerted and they were able to disarm the officer and take him into custody.
It is believed that the officer might not be mentally stable as he was filmed screaming incoherently while firing shots. He was also heard alleging that some persons wanted to corrupt him and that he should be allowed to go home in the name of Jesus.
Confirming the sad report, the spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, said the command was investigating to understand what truly happened.
