The Lagos State Police Command has arrested six suspects for alleged murder.

Spokesman of the Command, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, said the suspects have questions to answer for the  shooting and  killing of one Kayode Olorunroba, m, 35 years, of No 3, Werewere  Street, Alagbado,  Lagos State on Friday 11th September,  2020 at AVID Sharwama  sports, Alagbado area of Lagos State.

The incident occurred on 11/09/2020 at about 9.30pm when the deceased had an altercation at the spot with another customer, who is now at large.

After the shooting, Kayode’s friend and witness, one Okikiola Kazeem, ‘m’, who had earlier called him (Kayode) to join him at the Sharwama spot refused to report the incident to the  police, but rather took the deceased to a herbalist in Ogun State where they extracted the pellets.

He later took Kayode to his brother’s house at Ipaja Area, Lagos State, where he gave up the ghost.

As a follow up to the incident, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, directed that Police detectives be mobilized and hunt for the suspects who were linked to the killing.

In the course of the investigation,  the following were arrested: Chimezie Amaechi, the owner of the Sharwama Spot, Okikiola Kazeem, the deceased’s friend and suspect, Olayinka Oyedokun, the Manager of AVID bar, Femi Victor, Taiwo Morokola, and Omole Wasiu; and these suspects are giving useful information that can assist the police in the investigation.

Meanwhile, Odumosu  has ordered the State CID, Panti,  to take over the case for discreet investigation, while he reiterates his commitment to get Lagos State rid of crimes and criminality with the support of all and sundry in the state.
