Protesters Invade Police Station, Release Kidnap Suspects by kutashi: 8:46pm On Oct 12, 2020
…Policeman, bus driver killed, two in critical condition
…Expect upsurge in robberies, kidnappings – Security alerts Nigerians

The protest turned violent in the Surulere area of Lagos as protesters besieged the Anti Kidnapping Unit of the Command, killing a police Inspector . Two other policemen who were shot by armed hoodlums, who hijacked the protest, were said to be in critical condition as at time of writing this report.

Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command , SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the death, explained that ”

Today,(yesterday) being October 12, , 2020, at about 1pm, some armed protesters laid siege on the Anti Kidnapping Unit Office of the command, broke into the cell and liberated two of the kidnap suspects, before they were tactically and professionally repelled.

“In the process, Inspr Ekei Joshua with AP No 175493, Inspr Peter Agabi with AP No 251138 and Insp Erinfolami Ayodeji with AP No 229241(now late) attached to the Anti Kidnapping Unit of Lagos State Command, located at Iyun Road, Surulere were shot and critically injured. They have been rushed to the Intensive Care Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.

In addition, the protesters fired and killed one Ikechukwu Ilohamauzo, 55 years, a driver of one Toyota Sienna bus, with registration number LSD 296 FX, who got stuck in the traffic caused by the blockage of the road by the violent protesters, in Surulere today. It is pertinent to state that the attacked police inspectors and Mr Ikechukwu Ilohamauzu were hit and injured by pellets reasonably fired from pump actions/locally-made guns. The corpses of the deceased have been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.

“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has urged protesters to be peaceful and avoid violent attacks on police personnel or any other security agents. Also, he warned them not to harass innocent Lagosians by picketing them to forcefully join the protests and should avoid blocking access routes or roads for other Nigerians who are as well entitled to their fundamental human rights

“He also appealed to parents and guardians to keep watch on their children and monitor their activities to avoid being mobilised and used for illegal activities in the state.

“However, four suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident. The Commissioner has ordered the Homicide section of the SCID, Yaba, Lagos to carry out thorough investigation into the incident for further police actions

Those who are calling for halting of the protest will now have a point of reference. I now realized that some people in this forum whom I thought were on the side of the masses are hypocrites. The way they are against protesters of endsars, makes me to wonder if anyone really meant well for this country

Don't you know that those people supporting SARS herein, or other social medium, are either members of their families who has been benefiting from their blood money OR themeselves, since this is a faceless forum.
