Gunmen kill police inspector at checkpoint in Ondo State

Some yet to be identified gunmen on Monday shot dead a police inspector, identified as Lasisi on Isua- Ise Akoko Road in Akoko South East Local Government Area of Ondo State. It was gathered that the deceased together with his colleagues attached to Isua- Divisional Police Station, was at a police checkpoint when the suspected hoodlums suddenly appeared from the bush and opened fire on the policemen.

 

A source said the other policemen at the checkpoint were lucky as they escaped from the scene. The identity of the gunmen were unknown as of the time of filing this report. The source said, “The policemen were always on that road for the past one year to check the activities of the bandits in the area. But it was unfortunate today (Monday) that some hoodlums just came from nowhere and opened fire on the policemen at the checkpoint. While Mr. Lasisi was killed other policemen at the checkpoint ran for their lives.”

 

The source also disclosed that after killing the policeman, the hoodlums went away with his gun. A police source said the remains of the deceased was deposited at the morgue of  the Ipe Akoko General Hospital while policemen had moved into the bush trailing the hoodlums. When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident and said the men of the command were already on the trail of the hoodlums while an investigation into the matter had begun.

 

He said, “Our men are already combing the bush and I want to assure you that they would be arrested very soon.”
