Lagos CP orders trial of dead F-SARS operative who killed LASTMA official

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has ordered the posthumous trial and dismissal of an operative of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Inspector Olukunle Olonade.

Olonade, who was in mufti, had allegedly shot dead an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Rotimi Adeyemi, at the Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos State on Wednesday.

The LASTMA official had reportedly confronted the policeman, who had contravened the state traffic law.

In the ensuing altercation, the policeman was reported to have entered his car and brought out a gun with which he killed the victim.

The police spokesperson, CSP Chike Oti, said residents who witnessed the incident, thought Olonade was an armed robber and mobbed him.

He noted that although the inspector was rescued by a police team who arrived in the scene, the policeman died on the way to a hospital.

He said, “On November 28, around 6pm, the driver of a Toyota Highlander SUV, with registration number LSR 277 BJ, later identified as Police Inspector Olukunle Olonade, attached to FSARS Ikeja while driving along Iyana-Ipaja Road, was contravened for driving against traffic by a LASTMA official, one Rotimi Adeyemi, aged 46 years at Iyana-Ipaja Roundabout.

“The two men vehemently disagreed with each other. However, during the altercation, the said Inspector Olukunle Olonade allegedly shot the LASTMA officer to death.

“Consequently,  an irate mob, who thought that the shooter was an armed hoodlum because he was in mufti, descended on him and beat him to stupor.

“Although he was later rescued by teams of policemen drafted to the scene, he later gave up the ghost while being rushed to a hospital for treatment.

“The serial number of the pistol recovered at the scene was checked in the system and it revealed the bearer as Inspector Olukunle Olonade attached to FSARS Ikeja.

“Corpses of the deceased have been evacuated to the morgue for autopsy.

“The CP Lagos has directed that the late Inspector Olakunle Olonade be tried posthumously in orderly room and be recommended for dismissal from the Force.”
