The IGP added that all the policemen linked with the killing of the officer which caused a lot of tension in his local community, have been nabbed and will face the full weight of the law for killing the man and claiming he was an armed robber.

Akpos was allegedly killed by operatives of SARS with a huge protest carried by aggrieved citizens of his community over the manner he was killed.

Arase had then urged Nigerians to be calm, adding that police authorities have waded into the matter to ensure that justice was served.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olabisi Kolawole, in a statement signed by the IGP, said:

“Upon the receipt of the information, the IGP immediately directed that the matter be investigated to ensure justice is served."
