Police, others, cause havoc in Ikorodu

The spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, Dolapo Badmos, mentioned that the police officers were on legal duty.

Evidence of police attack on the community

According to The Nation, the land grabbers shot uncontrollably into the air, leading to injuries to a man identified as Yinka Olatunji.

Olatunji is reported to be seriously ill at the Ikorodu General Hospital, due to a gun shot wound and a machete blow.

Chief Olasunkanmi Oyebola, the leader of the community stated that the occurrence is a sad one, which had not occurred in the past four years.

Oyebola also talked about how the sad incidence came to be, stating that the land grabbers had police backing.

He said, “Before now, for three to four years back, we have never had issues of land grabbers known as “Ajagungbales” in Imowonla."

"It is a peaceful community. We are under Ijede AREA ‘N’ Police Command in Ijede. The police station in Imowonla is just an outpost but whenever there is robbery issue, we report to Ijede."

"Anti -robbery D9 from Panti police station are the one that broke into Imowonla on Tuesday morning and came back again in the afternoon."

"They did not report to Ijede police station before they came to attack our people on a false accusation."

“They accompanied the land grabbers who must have narrated a false report to them. They shot sporadically and injured a resident."

"Immediately they finished attacking our people and left, I quickly called police station at AREA ‘N’ at Ijede, we called the emergency unit and also MOPOL. They all came in to see what the hoodlums had done to our people.”

When an inquiry was made on the matter, Dolapo Badmos, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command said the police officers were on legal duty.
