A police officer on the loose after allegedly shooting two people during a birthday party held at a bar in Gowon Estate, Egbeda, Lagos.
The cop was handed food and drinks by the party organizers, who invited him to join in their celebration, according to eyewitnesses.
He resumed shooting irregularly after he had eaten and drank to his pleasure, apparently killing two of the attendees who were spraying money at the celebrant.
The remains of the deceased, as well as those who incurred gunshot wounds, were shown in a video posted online.
SP Benjamin, a spokeswoman for the state police headquarters, confirmed the incident.
“I can confirm there was shooting at the bar on Sunday night and two persons were killed. We are investigating the circumstances that led to the shooting. I can assure you that those responsible will not go free. They will face the music. The commissioner of police Lagos State, CP Abiodun Alabi, has zero tolerance for such behaviour and has already given marching orders to the DPO to fish out the culprits.”
It was also gathered that the policeman was invited to provide security by the celebrant identified as Ifeanyi alias Asiwaju of Computer Village.
