Mob Kills Police Officer In Agege (Photo)

It was a gory sight yesterday, January 10, when a group of angry mob shot a police officer to death in Agege area of Lagos.
The Nation reports that the mob shot dead Police Corporal Sunday David after he allegedly killed two persons in the area.
David, who was not in his police uniform was shot as he tried to flee after the act.
Also known as Iku Sunday, David who was attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Sqaud (SARS), got knocked down in traffic around Elere, and was shot in Salawu Street, Orile-Agege. at about 3pm.

The Nations reports that his blood splashed on the seats of his newly bought Toyota Camry saloon car; the side glass and the open roof were shattered.

An eyewitness said:
“It was at the point of searching that the police realised he was one of their own. The man shot two people, one in the chest and the other in the neck. He lives around here and they said he was running when those chasing him caught up with him in traffic and killed him.
“We heard that nothing was taken from his car. The people he shot were rushed to the hospital but we later heard they died in the hospital.”
Another eyewitness told The Nation that the late policeman just opened fire on the victims on a football pitch. The late Sunday, who is survived by three children, is in trouble because of the guns found on him, according to senior police officer. This is against Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Solomon Arase’s direction which forbids policemen from going home with their guns.
The officer said investigations would show how the late corporal, who was yet to report to his new place of assignment at SARS Ikorodu, came about the guns.
“It is a serious issue. He has been posted to Ikorodu for over one week now but he has not reported there. We are yet to know how he had two guns in his possession and what he was doing with them. Just the fact that he had those guns means dismissal. Because the IGP has been warning since last year that no policeman should take weapons home after duty.
“We cannot say it was armed robbery since his attackers did not take anything from him. He had two guns, a gold chain, and money bit none was touched. They just killed him and ensured he was dead. I do not know the condition of the people he shot but I heard one died in the hospital,” said the police source.
