Homicide detectives at the State Criminal Investigations Department, SCID, Panti Yaba, Lagos State, are interrogating a middle-aged man, Lukmon Alabi, over an alleged case of multiple homicide. Sources told Crime Alert that the suspect was arrested after he was declared wanted by security operatives at the State Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, and their counterpart at SCID.
A police source who craved for anonymity, said the suspects, said to be a member of outlawed Oudua Peoples Congress, OPC, working as a guard at a popular petrol station along Itire road, Surulere, Lagos, had shot and killed one Olajide Salawu, during a scuffle at Oyekan street, off Akole Street, Surulere, last year before absconding.
According to the source, “ He reportedly left the area and ran down to Ijora-Badia area of the state where he reportedly killed some other persons. The killing at Oyekan Street was reported at Aguda police station. When news of his second killing filtered out, operatives at SARS got wind of it and swooped on him.”
The source who is close to the investigatiors said, after the suspect’s arrest, operatives at the State SARS transferred him to the homicide unit of SCID to answer the case of murder.
When contacted, the command spokesman, Joseph Jaiyeoba, said the suspect will be charged for murder and illegal possession of firearms.
