Punch reported that an eyewitness revealed that the policeman wanted a share of the money the victim made from cyber fraud. But, when the man refused, an argument ensued leading to him being shot by the officer.
Another account by other residents had it that the victim had gone to meet a debtor who had police guards at a hotel on the street and he was shot twice in the chest during an argument.
The Lagos State Police Spokesman, ASP Famous Cole, confirmed the incident and said the Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, had ordered the arrest of the policemen involved and they were facing orderly room trial at the command headquarters, Ikeja.
