CP ORDERS INVESTIGATIONS INTO “ISHERI-Day” SHOOTINGS IN OGUN STATE

The Commissioner of Police, CP Bashir Makama has ordered a full scale investigation into the “Isheri Day” shooting incident in Ogun State on 13th August, 2019, by suspected Soldiers believed to be from Ikeja Cantonment, with a view to bringing the suspects to justice. 

Credible Information at the disposal of the Command has it that on the said date, Four (4) men of the Nigerian Army believed to be from Ikeja Cantonment and posted to Kara Market, left their beats and went to Isheri Olofin, a border town between Lagos and Ogun State where the indigenes of the town were celebrating their annual “Isheri Day”.  The Soldiers, on getting there, had a minor disagreement with some youths which made the soldiers to start shooting sporadically into the air. Consequently, one Damilare Adelani was hit by bullets and he died on the spot. The ugly incident infuriated the people at the scene who in turn reacted violently against the soldiers leaving one of the soldiers and three other civilians injured. 

The Soldiers quickly took their injured colleague to a hospital (name with-held) where they met one of the injured civilians being attended to by a Medical Doctor on duty. The Statement from the officials of the hospital reveals that the Soldiers ordered the Doctor on gun-point, to leave the injured man and attend to their colleague. They then dragged the patient out of the bed and subsequently stabbed him to death with a Bayonet attached to the muzzle of his rifle. 

Meanwhile, the Command has contacted the military authorities in Ogun State and efforts are in place to ensure that the suspected killer(s) are brought to book.
