A 16-year-old girl simply identified as Tina has been confirmed dead after being shot by a trigger-happy police officer along Berger Iyana Oworo area in Lagos.
According to circulating reports, the policeman was trying to arrest a bus driver for violating the curfew rules. In the process, he allegedly shot the bus conductor dead as well as the young girl.
Using the hashtag #JusticefofTina, Nigerians took to social media to demand the arrest and prosecution of the erring police officer. Following the outcry on social media, an investigation was launched.
The Lagos state police command spokesperson, Bala Elkana, has however announced via his Twitter handle that the erring police officer has been arrested and will be made to face the full weight of the law.
”The killer cop is identified, arrested and detained at the Headquarters. He will face the full weight of the law. Justice will surely prevail. Members of the Public will be updated on the outcome of the investigation.” Bala tweeted.
