Police in Lagos have arrested suspected operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) for killing unarmed suspects, Igbere TV reports.
A video of the incident went viral on Tuesday.
Lagos police spokesman, Bala Elkana, in a statement on Wednesday without confirming if they were SARS operatives, said that the officers killed the suspects who were “already in their custody against the code of professional conduct and laws guiding how suspects in Police custody should be treated.”
He named the officers as Inspector Fabiyi Omomayara, Sergeant Olaniyi Solomon, Sergeant Solomon Sunday, and Corporal Aliyu Mukaila attached to Iba Division Patrol team.
“The incident happened on 19/8/2019 at about 3.00pm, when Iba Police Station received a distress call from one Anugu Valentine ‘m’ of no 250 Agege motor road Mushin, that he was attacked by a group of armed men numbering about four on two motorcycles at Ipayi area, Iba and they dispossessed him of one iPhone max valued at #450: 000.
“Acting on the information, the Divisional Police Officer Iba promptly deployed the Divisional Patrol team to the scene. Two of the armed robbers were arrested while two escaped. Two locally made pistols with six life cartridges and five expended cartridges were recovered. The gang is said to be notorious for series of robberies in Iba and environs,” the statement said.
Mr Elkana said the “team however, went extreme by killing the suspects who were already in their custody instead of taking them to the Police Station and allowing the normal process of investigation and prosecution to be initiated as stipulated under procedural laws.”
He said the Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, has ordered a thorough investigation into the incident.
“The Police Officers are currently subjected to internal disciplinary proceedings known as Orderly Room trial and if found culpable, they will be dismissed from the Force and will be handed over to the State Criminal Investigation Department Yaba for prosecution in the conventional Court.
“Members of the Public will be updated on the outcome of the investigation and trial,” he said.

Killing those boys wasn't their first time... They were not just lucky this time.
I hope they are put in the same cell as one the guys they have hurt.
