So Sad! Family Buries The Student Killed By Police Officer As Nigerian Police Dismiss And Arraign The Killer

Sergeant Collins Idom, who allegedly shot dead 20-year-old Joseph Eidonojie-Ugbeni, an undergraduate of a polytechnic in Edo State, has been dismissed by the Lagos State Police Command, after 14 years in service, Punch reports.

He was arraigned before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrate’s Court on Monday, the same day the victim was buried at the Atan Cemetery, Yaba. Ugbeni was on a visit to his cousin, Friday Ojah, who lived on Alape Street, Iba, Ojo area.

It was reported that operatives of SARS were chasing a suspected internet fraudster, identified as Badoo, who had parked his car and fled upon sighting the officers. They were said to have started shooting sporadically while chasing Badoo.

Ugbeni, who had reportedly gone out to buy a canned drink with his cousin, was reportedly hit by a bullet and he died on the spot. The SARS operatives took his corpse and put in the boot of the car of the suspected fraudster and drove off.

Last month, the police arrested, detained and dismissed the killer cop after an orderly room trial at the state command headquarters, Ikeja. He was subsequently arraigned on Monday for murder. The Chief Magistrate, A.O. Awogboro, ordered his remand in prison.ff11
