The Lagos State Police Command has arrested 6 (six) suspects who have questions to answer for the shooting and killing of one Kayode Olorunroba, M, 35 years of 3, Werewere Street, Alagbado, Lagos State on Friday 11 September, 2020 at AVID Sharwama Spots, Alagbado area of Lagos State.
The incident occurred on Friday at about 9.30pm when the deceased had an altercation at the spot with another customer, who is now at large.
After the shooting, Kayode’s friend and witness, one Okikiola Kazeem, ‘m’, who had earlier called him (Kayode) to join him at the Sharwama spot refused to report the incident to the police, but rather took the deceased to a herbalist in Ogun State where they extracted the pellets.
He later took Kayode to his brother’s house at Ipaja Area, Lagos State, where he gave up the ghost.
As a follow up to the incident, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, directed that police detectives be mobilized and hunt for the suspects who were linked to the killing.
In the course of the investigation, the following were arrested: Chimezie Amaechi, the owner of the Sharwama Spot, Okikiola Kazeem, the deceased’s friend and suspect, Olayinka Oyedokun, the Manager of AVID bar, Femi Victor, Taiwo Morokola, and Omole Wasiu; and these suspects are giving useful information that can assist the police in the investigation.
Meanwhile, the CP Odumosu has ordered the State CID, Panti, to take over the case for discreet investigation, while he reiterates his commitment to rid Lagos State of crimes and criminality with the support of all and sundry in the state.
