Lagos State Police Command has begun investigation into the killing of one man alleged to be a kidnapper and setting ablaze of a golf car at Mulero Bus Stop, Agege, Lagos State on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 around 8.17 am.
The police operatives attached to Elere Division of the Lagos State Command, upon a distress call that some suspected kidnappers were being mobbed at Mulero Bus Stop, by Omotoye Estate, raced to the scene where one white gulf car and a male suspect had been set ablaze.
The police operatives moved in to rescue the other male suspect who had been macheted several times by the mob numbering over two thousand.
In a bid to rescue the other male suspect, the agitating crowd also attacked the policemen. The suspect was subsequently rescued and taken to a hospital for treatment.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, has again condemned the act of jungle justice and called for discreet investigation into the case, as he promised to continually kick against such inhumane act.
