The Lagos State Police Command on Friday, April 8 said it has begun investigation into the alleged killing of a motorcyclist killed by a personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The diseased, who was said to be a teenager, was reportedly shot dead by a female officer on Wednesday, April 6, at a filling station in FESTAC Town, Lagos State.

There were conflicting reports about the circumstances that led to the boy's killing.

According to the Police version, there was a fracas between the Civil Defence officers and some 'men,' which led to indiscriminate shooting that killed the boy, a motorcyclist identified as Emeka.

Three other people were seriously wounded in the incident, Police said.

However, a senior police officer who anonymously spoke at the scene of the incident on Wednesday condemned the NSCDC officers, assuring that they would be brought to justice.

But as the time of filing this report, the officers have not been fished out.
