The police in Lagos have on Wedneday arrested four cops for extrajudicial killing of two suspected robbers in their custody.

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

The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, Zubairu Muazu has ordered a thorough investigation into the incident. “The police officers are currently subjected to internal disciplinary proceedings known as Orderly Room trial and if found culpable, they will be dismissed from the Force and handed over to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Yaba for prosecution in the conventional
