The Inspector General of Police, Ag. IGP M.A Adamu has paid official visit to Lagos State to primarily, condole the family, friends and well-wishers of Adaobi Ojide Ifeanyi and her boyfriend Emmanuel Akomafuwa shot by police in Ajegunle.
Lady Adaobi Ifeanyi is dead, while her boyfriend, Emmanuel Akomafuwa, is receiving treatment in a hospital from the gunshot injury.
Addressing officers and men of Lagos Command against involving in acts that pitch the Police against the citizens, the IGP stated that the Nigeria Police Force, as a disciplined and responsible institution will never condone any form of abuse of power, overzealousness and sundry unprofessional conducts.
He reiterates that such anomalies, aside negating the professional calling of the Police, are unacceptable as they create distrust and disdain between the citizens and the Force.
The IGP therefore assures the entire public that the Force has immediately embarked on administrative actions and policies directed towards giving a new orientation to the personnel especially on human rights and international best practices.
A statement from the Force Public Relations Officer. Frank Mbah said that the IGP earlier in a private meeting with the family of the victims, Ada Ifeanyi and Emmanuel Akomafuwa, commiserated with them and assured them that justice will not only be done but will be manifestly seen to have been done in getting justice for the deceased and the injured.
The five policemen arrested are Inspector Adamu Usman, Sergeant Adeyeye Adeoye, Sergeant Kashim Tijani, Sergeant Lucky Akigbe and Sergeant Paul Adeoye while Inspector Dania Ojo, who escaped immediately after the shooting incident, has been declared wanted by the command.Before leaving Lagos State back to Abuja, the IGP paid courtesy visits to both the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Akinwumi Ambode and the Oba of Lagos, Oba Alaiyeluwa Oba Riliwanu Babatunde, Osuolale Aremu Akiolu 1.
