Policemen Arrested Over Lynching Of Students In Badagry by free2ryhme: 4:59am On Aug 05, 2013



The policemen accused of collaborating with hoodlums to kill two youths in Badagry, Lagos State, have been arrested.

They were arrested on Friday, according to the police authorities.

However, a new video made available to our correspondent identified two of the policemen as Inspector Adefemi Ashogbon, who is the station officer of the Badagry Police Division, and one Sergeant John Sonayon.

The two policemen and four other yet-to-be-identified policemen could be seen at the scene watching hoodlums beat the victims to death.

While Ashogbon and Sonayon were in the midst of the crowd, the four yet-to-be-identified policemen could be seen standing beside a white police patrol vehicle.

Ashogbon, who wore a green pullover and holding an AK47 rifle in the video, was the policeman that interviewed the victims during their torture.

It was learnt that the two policemen and some of the hoodlums had been arrested.

PUNCH Metro had reported that two youths, Ifechukwude Nwaikpor, and one Kazeem, were lynched in Ajara, Badagry, on July 21, 2013.

Nwaikpor, a final year student of Geology and Mining, and Kazeem were beaten to death after a misunderstanding with residents of the area.

PUNCH Metro learnt that at least eight people had been arrested over the incident. The state Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko, had set up a special team of policemen to handle the matter.

Manko exonerated the victims of robbery last Thursday and berated the Divisional Police Officer, Badagry Division, CSP Mohammed Dankoli, for unprofessional conduct.

He had said, “The Divisional Police Officer did not present the matter to us the way it happened. When we started asking questions, we discovered that the two people, who were killed, were not armed robbers contrary to what the DPO told us. When we saw the video clips and watched the way those boys were killed, we told ourselves that we would be failing in our duties if we fail to bring everyone involved to justice.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, said all the policemen in the video had been arrested.

“Investigations are ongoing. The outcome of the investigations will be made public in due course,” she added.

Question those policemen for the robbery. I am sure they were the one involved in the robbery, they just wanted to tie it round the neck of those two innocent guys. Nigeria police useless pass the letter "p" in the word psycho.

Saw the video, couldn't finish it, it was too gory. I wonder the kind of heart some people have, i can't even imagine my self standing their watching how those guys were sent to their early graves, its so despicable. I kept on imagining my self being in that condition, here i am about to die and people are watching, wooo! Abeg 'o, Hmmn. I feared commiting any crime that might lead to such then i wondered, what if they were innocent?

Jungle justice needs to stop.

Some of us are jubilating abt dis news, what has happened to the 7 suspects arrested in connection with the ALUU lynching after one full year? No justice or somtin close to that have been heard. Now we r jubilatin because police men wer 'Arrested' for anoda lynching. Failed judicial system... Failed state.
