The Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a Police corporal who shot and killed a commercial driver along the Sagamu portion of the Benin-Ore Expressway.
Confirming the development, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Muyiwa Adejobi, said that the suspected killer would be made to face the full wrath of the law as the Police authority would no longer condone any act of impunity and indiscipline from men and officers of the command, reports Channelstv.
A 42-year-old Likinyo Olumide was allegedly shot and killed by a policeman attached to the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police while on a trip from Lagos to Okitipupa in Ondo State, South West Nigeria.
An eyewitness explained that at about 9:30 pm on Tuesday night, the commercial vehicle, which had about 7 passengers who were Okitipupa bound, was flagged down by the Safer Highways Patrol team from Abeokuta, but without any form of argument or confrontation, the driver was allegedly gunned down by a corporal.
The driver, Likinyo Olumide and his heavily pregnant wife were reportedly killed and family members have demanded that justice be done.
Speaking on the incident, the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Bala Hassan, who was on a tour of Police formations in the state, gave the assurance that justice would be done to serve as deterrent to other policemen.
