The police in Lagos state have arrested and detained one of its officers for shooting a civilian, identified as Gafaru Buraimoh, dead at Happy Land Estate, Ajah, today, December 7. An eyewitness who shared videos from the scene said the young man killed was out to get fuel when he was gunned down. The cause of the shooting is yet to be ascertained. She also shared a video showing police officers in patrol vans and said they were firing teargas at people protesting the young man's killing. A statement released by the state police public relations officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, says the officer behind the shooting, an Inspector of Police, was immediately disarmed and detained as the full-scale investigation commenced. He mentioned that the Lagos State Police Command, through the Area Commander, Elemoro, and Divisional Police Officer, Ajah, has since notified and established contact with the family. ''The Command, while commiserating with the family of the deceased over the avoidable and most unfortunate incident, gives assurances that the already commenced investigation into the immediate and remote circumstances leading to the shooting will be brought to a speedy and conclusive end while equally ensuring that justice is served.'' the statement read.

Even though we complain from now till tomorrow nothing will be done but We only have one chance left to correct these errors in Nigeria, if you’re still supporting APC and PDP just expect the worse. We must push these people out of power and give it someone who has the interest of Nigerians at heart. Get your PVC and stay OBIdient.

all we do in this country is run from one known leader to another that dressed and portray him to be innocent…I remember the first tenure of Buhari everyone went out to vote him in against GEJ…. Now that they’ve cloned the man we all know and we begin to see SHEGE since the beginning of his second term in office…. Just so you know…. Obi doesn’t seems more of a unifier to me ….. he’s just another selfish leader hungry for the presidential seat…. If we can’t assign a youth vote who understands the vogue and how the world is being run today a cabinet filled with graduate and intelligent people… then there is still more SHEGE to see….
We need to come together…the youth needs to run the country…. And let’s see how it’s go

The Police Were Control By the Federal Government when Peter Obi Is Involved Now, But Anytime Police Or Army K*ll Someone In Lagos, Tinubu is the One Controlling Them, Double Standard 🤤

Well said bro, don’t forget to start telling our elderly parents and relatives about the importance of voting for a visionary leader who’s truly ready to serve and not these dictators we have oppressing us. We all need to start preaching the good news to other Nigerians same way the corrupt politicians are campaigning

I wonder if some of the police men are correct in manners... Forgot that 🔫 gůñ can k!ľľ someone, just like that a police man don end this guy future.... The problem is that they will never caution others seriously or punish the one that shot person to dęåd so others will learn from it.. ⚖ Justice Punish them publicly if shot unnecessary

We should use the Police to arrest the Police. We shouldn't use the Police to investigate the police or prosecute the Police. This is where we got it wrong and many wrong things keep happening. We need to create something like the FBI. Police should have another body checkmating it. That is how it should be done.

Always making mistakes and commiserating with the family of the deceased. It's no longer people feeling remorse and trying to change the system...... more of lip service. Taking media along and after that, the family will be neglected. Just continue.....

Nigerians should understand that the police was created by the colonial masters to protect them and there property by oppress the people of the land . Nigeria 🇳🇬 police was not created to serve and protect the people until we understand this then we can move forward.
