Gunmen Kill Police Sergeant, Rob Boat Passengers In Lagos

A police sergeant, Yusuf Hadi, has been ambushed and shot dead by suspected militants while in a boat on the Ishuti River in Egan area of Igando, Lagos. The bad guys, who were in another boat, attacked Hadi, who was attached to the Police Mobile Force 43, two female passengers, and the boat operator around the Agbara Bridge, towards Totowu community.

The incident occurred at about 3pm on Monday. Some policemen at the Igando division were said to have rushed the sergeant to a private hospital but he did not survive the attack.

It was learnt that the militants, believed to be pipeline vandals, also dispossessed the ladies of their phones and money, before ordering Hadi to lie flat in the boat.







The sergeant, who was in uniform as of the time of the attack, was said to have begged his assailants to spare his life. However, the heartless vandals said he was an enemy and fired him first in the leg.

Thereafter, they reportedly pumped bullets into his body.

It was gathered that the boat operator and female passengers ferried Hadi to Ishuti, Egan, where some policemen from the Igando division rushed him to a hospital, where he was confirmed dead.

Lagos Police spokesperson, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the killing. She said police will get the killers.
