Horror in Ikotun as police kill 5 looters, arrest scores

Pandemonium broke in Ikotun, Alimosho area of Lagos State following the killing of about five hoodlums who were shot dead by Mobile Police, Mopol, after attacking a popular supermarket and looted various items in the process.

Earlier, a Mopol officer and another person believed to be a police informant were allegedly killed by hoodlums in Idimu-Ikotun road, Egbe-Idimu Alimosho Local Council Development Area, LCDA.

According to an eyewitness, Mr Ayo Akinwale, “At about 2 pm some hoodlums who invaded Ikotun Police Station but found no policeman on ground proceeded to a nearby supermarket, called Twins Faja and looted various items such as computers, households items, wristwatches, foodstuff, among other expensive items.

“While the looters were still operating, a team of Mobile Policemen who arrived the scene following a distress call, started shooting at the looters killing at least five persons, while several others were arrested with various gunshot wounds.

“The bodies and those arrested were later taken away in the police vans to an unknown destination.”

When Vanguard visited the crime scene, the shattered glasses and other looted items which could not be taken away littered the ground.

It was also gathered that earlier, a mob had lynched a Mopol while walking along the road in College area of Ikotun, while another unidentified man believed to be police informant was also beaten to death in the presence of his infant daughter while having a stroll.

“Some of the hoodlums who recognised him as police informant raised the alarm before others descended on him and beat him to death in the presence of his daughter, about 7 years old.

“The body of the deceased was later recovered by the Mopol who have been patrolling this area,” Akinwale narrated.

Amid the curfew and following the ugly incidents the entire area was like a ghost town as the road was totally deserted with several Mopol in their vans seen patrolling the area at the time of filing this report, 6.30 pm.

@GIdiata above me,, they would say you don't love their fellow looters.

They are only seeing a temporary unrest. The permanent ones are still on the way angry

Hardened criminals being freed & I saw it live in Ibadan as the hoodlum-protesters were carting guns away from a Police Station.

Well, I hope the guns are meant for animals hunting tongue

We tried stopping this, you saw no sense in our mentions.

Enjoy the change you want,,,,,laughing wickedly grin grin grin

stanliwise:

The prison breaks was a total mistake. They just freed criminals of the society. Meanwhile I don’t understand why you are laughing as if you are not in same country with us, as if you have no relatives and friends who may be affected by the coming unrest.

@bolded, when a situation don pass crying, na to dey laugh remain (Yòrubá: Òrò tó bá ti ju ekún lo, èrín la fi n rín wink)

The fear of tomorrow may kill one today

I hope the policemen didn't kill innocent shoppers along with hoodlums.
Because naija no just balance at all.
For the looters, they must be made to face the wrath of the law.

Please no more protest. Stop the killing. Stop the looting. Everybody should go back to work. The president has suspended the protest he started.

Foolish man with no brain.

The police might be at an all time low psychologically but they are certainly not weak.

Same way some stupid people wanted to burn some properties in Ejigbo today forgetting there are pipelines and petrol depot around. Senseless!

Anybody found looting shops, banks, businesses...should be shut dead. We are all in this mess together for Christ sake! Looting wasn't part of the protest for a better Nigeria. Those bastard hoodlums have scuttled the objectives of the protests. Shoot the idiots.

This is becoming too much. I have told everyone around me to get prepared, at the end we shall be the ones to suffer the repercussions of all these reckless actions being perpetuated by these hoodlums.

All the guns stolen would still be used either for occultism, armed robbery or kidnapping, of which we the innocent citizens are more exposed to these dangers than even those in government.

God help us...
