Army Chiefs and Police meet over soldier’s death in Lagos

Following the death of a Nigerian soldier by a police officer, the leadership of the Nigerian Army and Nigeria Police in Lagos State have met.

The meeting happened on Thursday.

Recall that reports made rounds about a soldier identified as Saheed being killed in Ikorodu.

Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin shared photos of the meeting on Twitter.

CP Idowu Owohunwa and Brigadier General IA Akpaumontia of 9 Brigade met in the office of Lt Col. MI Abdurrahman, Commanding Officer, 174 Battalion, Odoguyan.

On Wednesday, an angry mob at Ogijo community, a border town between Ogun and Lagos, attacked a police station following the soldier’s demise.

The deceased had confronted a policeman standing close to a patrol vehicle of Operation MESA to confirm his identity.

This led to an argument which resulted in the policeman allegedly stabbing the soldier, leaving a serious wound.

The soldier was rushed to the Lagos State Polytechnic Hospital, Odogunyan, where he was declared dead on arrival.

The remains have been moved to 174 Battalion Medical Centre in Ikorodu. An investigation is expected to commence soon.
