Police Bullet Kills Undergraduate

An undergraduate student of a polytechnic in Edo State has reportedly been killed by a stray bullet fired by a policeman at the Ogoja Market, Lasu-Igando area of Lagos.

The story says policemen were shooting indiscriminately while chasing an internet fraudster, following which the undergraduate was hit.

The policemen allegedly dumped the deceased’s corpse in a car belonging to the fraudster before fleeing the scene. The policemen had allegedly described the deceased as a cult member, a move some people termed to be a ploy to cover up the murder.

Dolapo Badmos, spokesman for Lagos Police, was said to be unaware of the incident when her comment was sought.
