Police sergeant, Eze Aiwansoba who shot his girlfriend in the mouth at Salvation Bus Stop, Ikeja on the 8th October, 2020 has been dismissed and being prosecuted by the Lagos State Police Command.
Recall that Aiwansoba then attached to the Special Protection Unit, Base 16, Ikeja, when he committed the offence and he was being charged for firing and attempting to kill his lady friend, Joy Ndubueze.
According to statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi the incident was referred to the State Criminal Investigation Department of the command for investigation where it was revealed that the ex-policeman has a case to answer.
The statement read partly, “The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, ordered for the orderly room trial of the suspect where he was found guilty and recommended for dismissal.
“The approval for his dismissal was contained in a letter numbered PC. 458465/LS/DFA/2, dated 2nd February, 2021.
“After his dismissal, Ex-Sergeant Eze Aiwansoba, was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for prosecution via letter numbered AR:3100/LS/SPM/Vol.2/311 dated 3rd February, 2021.
“The State CID had written a letter to the Director of Public Prosecution, Lagos State, for legal advice which was eventually replied, noting that the sergeant should be charged to court for attempted Murder contrary to Section 230, Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
“The Ex-sergeant was charged to Magistrate Court, Yaba, on 9th February, 2021, with attempted murder of Joy Ndubueze; and the case is still on.”
Odumosu, has therefore assured the general public that no erring police personnel would go unpunished “as the command will not condone any act of criminality and unprofessionalism in all areas.”
