Policeman kills two, injures others while trying to offer gun salute during businessman’s birthday in Lagos

A drunk policeman on illegal duty while trying to offer gun salutes to celebrate a businessman’s birthday killed two persons and injured two others on Sunday night.

The Informant247 gathered that the incident occurred at La Silva Bar, Gowon Estate, Egbeda in Alimosho around 9pm.

The policeman, who allegedly fled the scene after realizing what he had done, was said to have been invited by the celebrant identified as Ifeanyi alias Asiwaju of Computer Village.

A Twitter user, @themannaman, who shared gory videos of the incident, claimed that the policeman wanted to shoot into the air while other guests were spraying money on the celebrant but fired at them instead.

He wrote: “Same policemen called for security, are the same people that shot and killed those they were called to protect…Nigeria which way.

“Birthday celebrant invited the police for security. The said policeman allegedly while drunk wanted to shoot upwards, then accidentally shot at them.”

Lagos Police Command has launched a manhunt for the cop and the celebrant said to have gone into hiding since Sunday night.
