Lagos State Commissioner of Police Zubairu Muazu has been urged to urgently unmask the killers of a young man who was gruesomely murdered by a trigger happy police man attached to a religious leader in the Ladipo Oshodi area of the state .
The advise was given on Monday by the Centre Against Injustice and Domestic Violence (CAIDOV) in a press statement signed by it’s Executive Director, Gbenga Soloki where he described the incident as “unfortunate,wicked and pure murder,” stressing that unmasking the killer cop will bring succour to the family of the deceased as well serve to deter other “irresponsible police men.”
The group appealed to the police hierarchy to withdraw policemen attached to some prominent people in the society and equally conduct search to ascertain the authenticity of most of those police escorts as information has it that some are dismissed police men, while some are mere area boys who are equipped by those who they protect.
According to CAIDOV “We want to appeal to the Lagos police commissioner to embark on serious scrutiny to unmask those police that murdered that young man in Ladipo Lagos State. It’s also pertinent to carry out extensive audit of police attached to VIPs as some are either dismissed or retired police men and in some instances, area boys are well equipped and provided gadgets by their bosses,thus the need to critically examine them and possibly withdraw some since the number of police we have is grossly inadequate for protection. “
The group commiserated with the family of the deceased and promised it will ensure that justice is done in the matter and urged the commissioner of police not to cover up anybody.
“The CP should ensure that those found culpable in the murder are not protected from the long arm of the law,” the statement concluded.
