Less than 24 hours after we broke the news of how two suspected robbers were extrajudicially killed after being disarmed and handcuffed in #Igando, Lagos, the four SARS operatives involved in their murder have been arrested.

The policemen identified as Inspector Fabiyi Omomayara, Sergeant Olaniyi Solomon, Sergeant Solomon Sunday and Corporal Aliyu Mukaila the Lagos police command said, will now be charged with murder because they breached the code of professional conduct and use of fire arms.

The killer cops were seen the video shooting the suspects alleged to belong to a notorious armed robbery gang operating via Jiji, an e-commerce platform.

They had robbed one Valentine Anugu of his mobile phone. While two of the suspects fled, the others were held, disarmed of the two locally pistol, six live and five expended cartridges they had before being shot dead inside the commercial bus they (police) used for the operation.

Condemning the action of the policemen, spokesman Bala Elkana, said they went to the extreme and violated the rules on the treatement of suspects in custody.

Although the gang was said to be notorious in the area, the police team took their celebration of the arrest to the extreme by killing the suspects, Elkana said.

“The team went extreme by killing the suspects who were already in their custody instead of taking them to the Police Station and allowing the normal process of investigation and prosecution to be initiated as stipulated under procedural laws.

That act of extrajudicial killing falls short of police professional standards and cannot be condoned by the command,” he added. [Swipe to view the disturbing video]
