0 30


The Lagos State Police Command has arrested some suspects in connection with the murder of a chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Lagos Island Unit, Alhaji Azeez Ashake.

It would be recalled that Ashake was shot dead by some unknown political thugs on the evening of Saturday, September 20, after the Peoples’ Democratic Party rally at the Tafawa Balewa Square on the Lagos Island.

Our correspondent learnt that the suspected killers were arrested by operatives attached to the Homicide Section of the state Directorate of Criminal Investigations, Yaba, Lagos. The suspects were said to have been arrested during a raid in the area by operatives.

It was further gathered that the suspects arrested included one Olubodun and others whose names could not be ascertained.

It was learnt that apart from the murder of Asake last week Saturday, three other persons had died from the violence in the Lagos Island environs which lasted for about a week.

Our correspondent gathered that the three persons were killed following Asake’s death when rival political thugs stormed the camp of one Abija in the area.

The mayhem in the area was said to have been caused by the clash among political thugs from the All Progressives’ Congress, and the Peoples’ Democratic Party.

As of time of report, it was gathered that the suspects, now in custody, are helping the police with investigations to get others who were involved in the mayhem and deaths.

The Lagos State Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lelma Kolle, said he would call our correspondent back with details of the arrest. He had, however, yet to do so as of press time.
