Lagos Police Command To Nigerian Army: Fish Out Soldiers Who Tortured, Murdered Our Officer At Trade Fair.

Lagos State Police Command has asked the Nigerian Army to fish out soldiers behind the torture and murder of Inspector Monday Orukpe who was among the five policemen attacked for stopping vehicles along their lane to pave way for a heavy duty truck joining the expressway.

The Command has also asked the Army to return two AK47 rifles and three magazines carted away by the soldiers while it awaits the panel of inquiry set up by the Nigerian Army to investigate the immediate and remote cause of the incident.

In a statement signed by the Spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, stated that the Command’s attention has been drawn to a report credited to Major General Umar Musa, outgoing GOC 81 Division, claiming that a ‘police officer shot at the soldier during the altercation which clipped him in the ear but narrowly missed his vital parts.

He added that in as much as the Command is in a grieving mood and has decided to toe the line of civility, it is pertinent to stand against misinformation.

Part of the statement reads: “The fact remains that on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, at the Trade Fair area of Lagos State, about thirty Privates of the Nigerian Army attacked five policemen for stopping vehicles along their lane to pave way for a heavy duty truck joining the expressway. After the soldiers had brutalized the ASP leading the team, taken out his magazine, and abducted two Inspectors with their rifles, the next Inspector they attempted to attack fired a single shot into the air, an act that made the soldiers retreat.

The single shot was into the air and at no point was anyone hit. The Lagos State Police Command challenges the Army authorities to present the soldier allegedly shot.

While we mourn our fallen hero, and pray for the total recovery of the second abducted Inspector, we urge Nigerians to disregard the claim that a soldier was shot as there is absolutely no truth to it.

The Command equally looks forward to the fishing out of the soldiers behind the torture and murder of Inspector Monday Orukpe; and the return of two AK47 rifles and three magazines carted away by the soldiers, in line with the pledge made by the Nigerian Army as conveyed by Brigadier-General KN Nwoko during a condolence visit to the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, CP Abiodun Alabi.
