The attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to the news making the rounds on the social media that SARS operatives, on Monday 9th of April, 2018, beat a citizen until he was dead. Based on the video clip of the incident which went viral on the social media, the Command began an investigation into matter. Part of its findings was that no such incident took place at Haruna Bus stop, Ogba on Monday 9th April,2018; there was no record of it being reported at any of the police formations within Ogba Area Command nor was it reported at any of the Command’s complaint platforms. Besides the above, it is a common knowledge that such an incident cannot happen in the city of Lagos without an uproar at the venue of incident; it is in this regards that plainclothes detectives were deployed to enquire from the people living and doing business around the popular Haruna bus stop whether such incident ever happened in their area and not a few were embarrassed by such question because according to them it never happened. The Command, therefore, wishes to advise the public to take unverified news emanating from social media platforms with a pinch of salt. Media houses of all categories are also advised to seek confirmation of information available to them from the police before pushing it out to the public.

  6. A businessman, Immanuel Ibe-Anyanwu, created a sensation on Monday after calling for help on Facebook while in the toilet of a Zenith Bank branch at Ago Palace-Way, Okota, Lagos State. Ibe-Anyanwu claimed that some operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad were waiting outside the bank to extort money from him. The 37-year-old, in the post, claimed that the policemen had seized his company documents. While urging his friends and other readers to share the post, he said his phone battery was running low. The post had been shared by over 400 social media users in five hours, as many Nigerians rallied support for him. The victim said he stayed in the toilet for over two hours. He claimed that the operatives, who waited patiently for him, later removed the number plate of his car in a desperate bid to extort money from him. Narrating his ordeal, he said, “I was coming out of the banking hall after a transaction around 2pm on Monday when a man in mufti approached me. He said he was a policeman. I asked for his ID card, which he showed me. He told me to follow him to where their vehicle was parked. “They were seven in number in a mini-bus. They were all armed, except the driver. Immediately we got there, he told his colleagues that I was trying to snatch his ID card from him. I was shocked. I wanted to explain, but they asked me to shut up. “They went through my company documents. They saw that the address of my company was at Ikoyi and asked what I was doing at Okota. I told them that I came for a banking transaction. They asked why I didn’t do it at Ikoyi and I replied that I lived in Okota and that I left my house late and wanted to do the transaction before going to the office. “They asked what we do in my company and I told them. They asked what I was doing before I opened the company. They said I should open my car for a search. which they did; they didn’t find anything there. They said I should enter their vehicle so that I could take them to my office at Ikoyi to confirm that I worked there. They said they know the street, but they don’t know my company.” The victim said he suggested that they meet with his landlady or speak with his office workers on the telephone, but the policemen refused. He noted that he called the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, SP Chike Oti, who asked to speak with the operatives. Ibe-Anyanwu said after he handed over the phone to the officials, they cut off the call and seized the phone. He explained that a resident later mediated and asked the policemen to release him. “They said because of the man that begged for me they would release me. They called me aside and asked me to arrange some money for them. I told them that I needed my phone to arrange the money. They returned my phone. “I went into the bank and sneaked into the toilet where I wrote the Facebook post. I called the police spokesperson again to inform him that they had just released my phone and were demanding money. He told me not to give them anything. He said he had mobilised some officers and they were coming to rescue me. “I was in the toilet till 4pm and thought by then they would have left; but they stayed. Later, the bank workers asked me to leave their premises. By then, my phone battery was flat and I could not call anybody. By the time I peeped outside, I saw they had removed my car’s number plate,” he added. The businessman said he had “swiftly” entered the car and turned on the ignition to leave the premises when the policemen surfaced and blocked his path with their vehicle. He explained that he refused their call to wind down the glass, adding that a crowd gathered around the scene. Ibe-Anyanwu said the policemen dropped his number plate and drove out to wait for him outside the bank. “The bank asked me to leave their premises. I was confused. I decided to risk it and speed out. That was how I escaped. Although I can recognize them, they don’t have any name tag. They only had their crested guns with SARS jacket,” he added. The state Police Public Relations Officer, Oti, in a statement, said the policemen had been identified. He added that the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, had ordered their arrest and trial. He said, “On sighting the X-Squad personnel of the command, the erring policemen hurriedly left the scene in a manner suggestive that they were on an illegal duty. “The Lagos CP directed the Officer-in-Charge of the X-Squad Section to fish out the policemen within two hours. That directive was actualized with the identification of the policemen involved. They were led in that inglorious duty by one Inspector Jude Akhoyemta, attached to FSARS Ikeja. The CP has ordered their arrest and as soon as that is done, the public will be notified.”

The robbers were also said to have injured the driver of the vehicle and escaped with N3m. It was learnt that the cop had escorted two officials of a plastic raw materials company in a Nissan Almera to a Zenith Bank branch at Amuwo Odofin around 2 pm to withdraw the cash. They were returning from the bank when the gunmen ambushed them on Babangida Road, Amuwo Odofin, and opened fire on the car. One Okoroafor, who drove the car, and the policeman, were shot by the assailants, while the third occupant of the vehicle escaped unhurt. A source, who lives in the community, told our correspondent that the robbers had fled with the money before a police team arrived at the scene. He said, “The attack happened on Tuesday, March 13. Their car was on Babangida Road that afternoon when the hoodlums, who were in another vehicle, intercepted them and shot continuously. “The car was driven by a middle-aged man. There was an armed riot policeman and another man inside the car. Before the policeman could engage the robbers, he had been shot. The driver also sustained an injury. I heard the survivors saying that the robbers escaped with the N3m they collected at Zenith Bank.” A police source also confirmed the attack. He said the survivors were officials of a firm that dealt in plastic raw materials on the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway. The source said, “The late cop was attached to the Police Mobile Force 20, Ikeja, from where he was posted to the company. The unhurt occupant of the car is the accountant of the company. The policeman had escorted them to Zenith Bank at Amuwo Odofin to withdraw N3m. “They were on their way back to the company when the hoodlums attacked them. The policeman died at a private hospital in FESTAC.” Another police source said the accountant and two officials of the bank were interrogated by the police in connection with the attack. “There was a suspicion that the robbery was calculated given the fact that it happened in the daytime in a busy area like Amuwo Odofin. The police are seriously concerned about the incident and efforts have been intensified to bring all the perpetrators to book. “The policeman’s rifle was recovered at the scene and his corpse was deposited in the Mainland General Hospital morgue for autopsy.

We will leave no stone unturned.” Attempts to get the reaction of Zenith Bank proved abortive as calls put across to the telephone line of its Head of Corporate Communications, Victor Adoji, rang out. He had also yet to reply to a text message sent to him as of press time.
